Tilt Sash Block and Tackle Channel Balance

A quick learner from Houston says:
The only discernable marking is "27B".
No surprise that it's 27" long.
Can you match it, and does the manufacturer include the pin that engages the cam mechanism?
One of the two on my window sash rusted away.
Thanks!

Hi Ron, thank you for posting,

Your balance resembles the S795-27 channel balance, but with a 15-198 hook at the top for install. This configuration will require a custom order to assemble for you as the stock balance is made with a screw in clip at the top. 

Please let me know how many balances you need and I can send over an order link with pricing for your review. For custom orders there is a minimum of (2) required.

For the pivot pin/bar, are you able to show us an undamaged version for us to review for a replacement option? Thank you!

Hey Lauren,
Please see the attached shots of the bar or pivot pin on my windows.
I'm glad to hear that you have a match for the balance, and I can only hope that yours are higher quality! Our house was not built that long ago.
Thanks.

Hi Ron,

The original pivot bar will need to be removed to measure accurately, but start by reviewing the style and dimensions of the 26-083 pivot bar or 26-040 to see how they compare. Let us know what you think! 

Please let me know how many balances you need and I can send over an order link for your review. Thank you! 

A quick learner from Houston says:
Hey Lauren,
No problem on the quantity; actually you can sell me three pairs plus the 26-083 pivot bars.
I'm sure that I'll have more balance failures on my hands! Hopefully you use better materials than the manufacturer of my windows did, and these pivots won't rust out in-place.
Thanks for all the help.

Thank you for confirming,

I have sent over a separate email with an order link for (6) balances. These balances are nonrefundable.

Please note that the 26-083 will need to be added to your cart additionally from the product page before checking out. 

Let me know if you have any additional questions!
