Balance without stamp

A handy person from Sherwood, Oregon says:


I have insulate industries window from 1995 with a spring channel balance with a broken cord. I can not find any number on the channel balance. It is 26 inches and 9/16.
I am attaching a picture. All help appreciated!

Hey, thanks for posting. I've narrowed this down to two possible channel balance Series: either our Series 380 or our Series 385 balances.

Now, as you can see, there is only one difference between these two Series, and that is their bottom shoe. The Series 380 uses the 15-005 while the Series 385 uses the 15-004. I can't quite tell what you have based on your pictures, though. Please carefully compare their dimensions to your own hardware and see which is a better match.
15-004 and 15-005

Many Thanks!

Looks like 15-005 - 1 " from flat on hook (far side of above picture) to inside of foot (near side of above picture).

I will be ordering two.

Thanks again,
