Need balance tops for a metal double hung window

I am missing the tops to the balances for a double hung metal window. The attached photos show the balances and several photos of the top sash guide. Please advise which balance tops I need. Thanks

Thanks for posting! Check out our 18-204 and compare its dimensions to your current hardware to make sure they match up. If you have any other questions just let us know.

I need the appropriate channel balance top for the balances that I have - see previous thread. I believe there has been a misunderstanding as you recommended part 18-204 which is a top sash guide (which attaches to the window frame) I need the appropriate channel balance top which fits into the top of the balance not into the window frame.

Thanks for clarifying. I'm afraid there's no way of knowing what channel balances you need based off a missing top and the Top Sash Guides--these guides work with loads of different possible balances. We need to see an undamaged balance--specifically, pictures of the fittings on both ends and and any stamp code on the metal channel. From there we'll do our best to ID what you need.
