This page has all the parts for the clock weights. We have the complete weight with the shell, lead, caps, rod and hooks. We also have all these parts singularly.
If you're getting the complete clock weights because you're missing one or more, we would need to determine how much the weight has to weigh for your clock.
This requires getting the information off of the back plate of the brass movement itself (not off the paperwork) and then using the weight chart below.
The chart is for a pendulum bob that is less then 8.5 inches wide.
If you have a pendulum bob that is 8.5 wide, or more, the chime weight and the time weight would be the same. All weights get shipped UPS and not US Mail.
Get the maker of the movement, this information you need is on the back plate of the movement itself. Even though the case may say its a Howard Miller or Ridgeway or some other name like this, these cabinet makers all used the below movement manufacturers. If confused, please Email us the numbers off of the backplate of the movement, and also the diameter of the pendulum bob. 1 INCH = 25.4 MM.
NOTE: The time Clock weight = strike weight unless a 8.5 pendulum bob or larger is used, if this is so, the time weight = chime weight. (Tubular Bell movements are an exception)
When the weights are raised too high up they often get stuck and the clock will not run or chime. When winding the weights up it is a good idea to always be able to see the top of the clock weights, never go to the point where you can’t see the top of the shiny weight covers. But of course this does happen sometimes even with the best intentions especially if there are kids in the house that may try to wind it. Anyway if the weights are stuck use these steps to attempt to get them down some.

WEIGHT SPECIFICATION NOTE: If 8.5 pendulum bob or larger is used, the time weight should be the same as the chime weight instead.

This is the original factory replacement Clock Weights cable for German clock movements with installed cable ends. The first number is the thickness such as .040 and then the next number is the total length such as 76 Inches.
German solid brass cable pulley for Hermle / Urgos / Kieninger clock movements. These come in either 1 1/2 inch diameter or 1 3/4 inch diameter.
Brass top hook for modern German movements such as Hermle / Urgos / Kieninger. Comes either with external threads or internal threads. The M* number is the thread size of the screw/bolt, M4 is 3mm, M5 is 4mm.
