Viking Window Channel Balancer

A landlord from Cameron Park, CA 95682 says:
29 inch long, with 2830 then an upside down G and then a vertical B.S.I


I found some options on your site but they seem to be "close" and I was concerned about getting the exact fit.

Please confirm what I should order.

Good morning, and thanks for posting. Take a look at our 15-001 and 15-002 and tell me which is a closer match to the shoe on the window balance you are replacing.

Mine looks to be the 15-002 as the bottom is right at about 1 inch. It is measuring a little closer to 1 1/16" but is definitely not 1 1/8".

Great. I think you have the 15-001, actually. It's likely that it was once 1-1/8" and wore down with time. If it's over 1" at all, I would not recommend the 15-002. See our S395-29 with the 2830 option. This balance features the 19-005 top and the 15-001 shoe.

There is only slight wear but I think you are correct (and you are the expert... so that helps). I also took another look and you cannot measure bottom edge to bottom edge. on the left side the farthers point is just above bottom but on the right side the farthest point is actually closer to the top... so if you go from farthest point to farthest point and you add back ever 1/16 for wear.... it would be the 15-001.

Off I go to order them...
