How can I identify my pivot shoes?

How do know which exact Pivot shoes I need? I need to purchase some so that I can fix my window ASAP.

Thanks for posting! The best way to determine what pivot shoes you need is to compare what you currently have installed to the hardware we feature in our Tilt-Window Replacement Pivot Shoe Section and see what matches up.

If you're having trouble, you can take a few pictures of your pivot shoe and upload them here for us to see and we can take it from there. Keep in mind, however, that we will need to see the pivot shoe removed from the window in order to accurately identify it. You can see the video below for the best method of removing the shoe from the jamb. We would also need to know its width and thickness.

there is a number on the pivot shoe. The number is 4610108 - The measurement is 2 inches in height, 1 1/4 inch wide, and 1/2 inch depth/thickness

I have attached some pictures below.

Thanks for the images! That's a big help.

Now, what you have looks similar to our 15-129, but that measures 9/16" deep so I'm not sure if that's what you want to go with. Our 15-135 looks a little different, but it measures 1/2" deep and will work in the same way. What do you think about that?
