Broken Pivot Bar

A home owner from New London CT says:
I'm sorry but I don't have the broken pieces. I've tried to take photos of every angle that I can without hiring someone to take the window out. It fell when I was washing the upper half when both pegs on the pivot bar broke. I have additional photos and will try to send them via the link provided. The horizontal metal piece measures 2 1/4".

Thank you so much for your help.

Hey, Vickie. Always happy to help, of course. Looks like you have the old CertainTeed pivot bar. They discontinued this and replaced it with the new style 26-175. I know it looks pretty different, but believe it or not it should still work in your old pivot shoe.

Thank you so much. I was afraid I was going to have to replace the entire window. I'll order extras just in case.

Great, thank you for the order! You definitely shouldn't need a new window. It's our philosophy to exhaust every other possible replacement option before going down that route. There's usually always a work around!
