Channel Balance and Top Sash Guide

A quick learner from St. Louis says:
I have a non tilt window, attached are pics of the channel balance and top sash guide I need to replace. The metal on the channel is 23 inches long, 5/8 depth, and 1/2 inch wide. 22 D is stamped on it. The top sash guide is 7/8 inch wide at the top

Thanks for posting. Your top sash guide looks like a broken version of our 18-159P. Look it over and tell me if you agree.

I'm not sure about the balance. You're only showing the bottom fitting, so I can't confirm the Series. Can you also show me the top nylon fitting? I'd also like to know the depth of the bottom fitting I mentioned. This would be the "heel to toe" measurement, assuming the balance is standing straight up like how it is while installed. Please be as precise as possible.

A landlord from OFallon IL says:
I have the same top sash pictured above and it is not the 18-159P. Same configuration on the top half, but does mot include the bottom half. It is a left right pair. If you do not have the identicsl part, can I still use 18-159P? Cut off lower half?

Thanks for this photo. I see now that our 18-159P will not work, thank you for confirming. We may be able to supply this smaller version but I need a bit more time to track it down. I will let you know the moment I have more information.

A landlord from OFallon IL says:
Additional info. My part has identical dimensions to the upper half of 18-159, except for small tabs on the flat backside. I had to also cut those off to get it to slide into to window frame.

Thanks! We actually found a good match for this and are working on adding it to our site. Please give us a little time to have stock made up and I'll let you know as soon as it's available.

A landlord from OFallon IL says:
Tom, have you received the "good match" part in stock yet. When are you expecting it? Thanks.

We have not yet, unfortunately. It usually takes several weeks for stock like this to be made up. I promise that you will be notified the very moment we have it available for you to view.
