39-363 is worn out

A home owner from Minnesota says:
Paul,

If this part is wore out, will this cause the window to slightly sag? I have a 4 pane window with 2 casement as part of this window. From the inside of the house, the left casement window slightly sags and will catch on the bottom right while closing it.

Paul from SWISCO responded:
Yes, I believe that if a 39-363 shoe is worn that it will start causing issues. Casement windows are very fragile, and as they get older they will sag even more. With that in mind, I suggest replacing your worn 39-363 pivot plate hinge shoe to keep your other parts from failing due to the sagging.
