Dakota Balance Shoe

A quick learner from Pittsburgh, Pa. says:

Part I need is for a AWS vinyl S/H. Width measures 15/16" x 1 5/8" tall.
AWS stands for American Weather Seal. Out of business. Block & tackle balance fastens to a "S" hook.

For the pivot shoe, the most important dimensions are width and thickness. Height doesn't matter so much. I recommend you look at our 15-178 or 15-188 and see if either of these can work. I don't see the "tooth" coming out of the top tilt latch, but previous customers with AWS windows have used our 26-263 and 26-264. As for the tilt bar, if you are using the first hole from the tip that goes in the shoe, I recommend our 26-226.

The two shoes are pretty much identical & maybe
even improved. But they're 1 1/4" wide. They won't fit in a 1" cavity. Regards. Dave

Ahh, I see. My mistake. In that case, how about our 15-167 and 15-179? Could these be better?
