Cant find Superseal window balance shoe

A home owner from Martinsburg WV 25401 says:
The windows are Superseal tilt windows that are no longer made. The channel is 1 1/4 in. The balance shoe is in the channel and there is no cut out to remove it. The picture is of one that is intact. The top metal piece is broken and I want to know if there is a replacement that will fit to hook the terminal clip into?

Thanks for posting! How about our 15-129? Could this be a possible match? Let me know if you agree.

15-129 looks very similar and may work. Is there any other way to extact the old shoe other than purchasing the tool to spread the channel?

Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of ways if there isn't already a cutout in the jamb. You could consider making your own cutout, but it can be tricky and you may want the help of a professional.
A home owner says:
I received the 15-129 but I guess my measurement's are off. They are too big. Looks like the channel is only 1 inch. Do you have a smaller version of this type?

I'm sorry to hear that our 15-129 didn't work. Did you compare the dimensions we show on our site to your original? How do they differ, exactly?
