15-045 Pivot Shoe Compatibility

A quick learner from Oxford, FL says:
Hello, two quick questions regarding the 15-045 Pivot Shoe:

1) What are the cam lock opening dimensions?
2) Is this compatible with the MI Window Series BB740? The dimension sure seem spot on, but would appreciate added assurance from an expert.

Thanks!

Thanks for contacting us. The 15-045 cam opening is 1/4" wide and 3/16" high. I wasn't able to match that number you gave us to anything, I'm afraid. A popular tilt bar that interacts with is is our 26-375, but otherwise the 15-045 has been used in a wide variety of windows and there's no saying for sure if it can work for you based on your window brand.

Appreciate the prompt reply Paul! The cam opening dimensions you provided match mine perfectly. Also, the 26-375 Tilt Bar is what my windows use. Swisco also offers 26-351 Tilt Latches. Since both this tilt bar and tilt latch are for the Better-Bilt brand, apparently MI Windows use the same parts since compatible with my BB740 series. Thanks and I placed a Swisco order today!
