window balance replacement

A home owner from 07030 says:
I would like to replace my window balance but can't figure out which replacement part to buy. The balance doesn't seem to fit with any of the replacement parts I've seen on this site.

Thanks for posting. I'm afraid your balance has been discontinued, however the manufacturer suggest a a custom S795-27 balance with a 15-198 clip attached at the top and a 27D stamp option. Would this work for you? If so, let me know how many you need and we can work from there.

Thanks I got it. I'll order the right parts.

Keep in mind that placing the 15-198 clip on the S795-27 can be a little tricky without the right procedure. You will need to extend the cord, secure it in a vice grip, untie the knot that holds in the current clip and then retie the 15-198 in place. You will then have to firmly hold onto the cord as you release the vise so that it doesn't snap back. We can custom make it for you, which is no trouble at all, but it is possible to do it yourself.
