A handy person from Orlando, Florida says:

length of window balance is 17 inches width is 1/2 inch

Only number marking is 16E as seen in 1763 jpg

Don't know the window make/manufacturer

Would like to order 2

Need to replace because the string broke inside

on one of the balances.

Hi, Gary.

At first glance, this looks like either our S380-17 or S385-17 channel balance. The S380 uses a 1" bottom fitting and the S385 uses a 1-3/32" fitting. However, your bottom fitting looks like it might be less than 1" but pictures can be deceiving so we suggest measuring yours to be 100% sure. If it is indeed less than 1", this will have to be a custom order. Let us know what you find and we can go from there.
