Thanks for posting. Could you show me a clearer picture of the bottom nylon fitting? Can you also show me a clearer picture of the stamp code on the metal channel? It's a bit hard to read in your photos. Many thanks.

The stamp code is 23-2. Attached are more pictures.

Thank you! From these photos, it's hard to see the top balance fittings clearly. There are three options for the top one and I'll need you to pick out the closest match: either our 19-018, 19-034 or 19-041.

For the bottom fitting, can you tell me its depth? It's either our 15-001, which is 1-1/8" deep, or our 15-002, which is 1" deep.

Can you explain to me what depth measurement I am looking for? The part by the spring?

What you're showing in these two photos here is the top fitting. What you need to measure is the bottom nylon fitting on the other end. What you want to do is stand the balance straight up and then think of that bottom fitting like a shoe, or foot. You want to get the "heel to toe" measurement. That's the depth.

You're welcome! Let me know if you have any other questions.

I'm actually looking to replace the entire channel balance bar. Can you suggest which of your models is the best replacement?

Tom from SWISCO responded:

I'm not sure what model to recommend. We still need to figure out what your nylon fittings are. We have to determine whether the top is our 19-018, 19-034, or 19-041. Then we need to determine if your bottom is our 15-001 or 15-002.

Once we know that, we can proceed. The combination of nylon fittings will change a lot at this point, so it's important to confirm those first.
