The Unique window balance went out of business in the late 1990's but we do believe we can help. 

May we see the another balance and pivot shoe in the window track and the pivot bar on the bottom of the sash, so we can come up with a replacement?

Thank you for getting back to us. Now, like I mentioned, this balance isn't made anymore. However I think we can custom make a balance that will work in the same capacity.

Specifically, we're thinking of using our S795-31 but with the top clip swapped out for our 15-198 hook. Does that look good to you? This should be compatible with your old pivot bar, so you wouldn't have to change anything else.

If you want to go that route, please let me know how many balances you need and I can email you an order link and price quote for the desired quantity.

Thank you and I will start by ordering two units to see how it works. I have eight windows in that size and will replace them all once I check the first one for fit. So send me a quote for the parts I need and again I really appreciate your efforts in finding a solution.
Best regards, Phil ?

You got it, Phil. We're happy to help, of course. I'll have my colleague Tom shoot over an order link and price quote right now for 2. If you wanted more, please let me know right here and we'll be happy to do so!
