SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Highly corroded pivot bar--ID?

A home owner from Dexter, MI says:
This is the part that protrudes from the window pane and connects it to the hanging hardware. The "rusty" section was screwed into the window and the non-rusty section was connected to the spring in the window frame.

The previous owners of the house tell me the windows were Ventaire 500 series type.

Thanks for contacting us, Doug. That is a very rusty pivot bar! Never fear, though--I believe I recognize it. Please take a look at our 26-297 and compare its dimensions to your own hardware. Do you think you could use this as a replacement? Let me know!

Wow you guys are amazing! I *never* thought I would find this piece, but you have identified it precisely. What a lifesaver you guys are!
