Acorn window pivot shoes.

A quick learner from DEnver says:
Hi - We have Acorn metal double hung windows that I need to replace the plastic pivot shoes for. I have seen the wide variety of pivot shoes that you offer. Do you know which of them are specifically for our Acorn windows? - or should I just go by the measurements? Also, what do you recommend for a lubricant on the metal sides of the windows so that they slide easily? Thanks very much! Kip

It's best to go by the measurements and style of your current pivot shoe, especially its width and thickness. As for lubricant, we like to use silicone spray, since it doesn't attract dust or debris.
