Milgard wool pile + lock

A home owner from 94041 says:

I'm looking for wool pile base length 4/32" for the bottom window sash.

Also, I need a lock, one of those metal bars with screw.

That's a very peculiar width. It looks like one edge of the bottom portion of the wool pile is cut or broken off, though, so we believe the base was originally 3/16" wide. Does that sound right? Check the rest of the wool pile on the window, or perhaps from an identical window elsewhere in the house and see if we're right.

I'm also not sure what the height is, but from based on your photo it could be something like our 58-127 (3/16" x 1/4").

The metal bar with screw sounds like you are talking about a pivot bar like our 26-040, but I don't know if that's what you have. You will need to compare our pictures and dimensions to your own to confirm. Otherwise, we will need to see pictures of that, as well.
A quick learner says:
Hi Paul - thanks! You are right, it's the 3/16". And thanks for pointing me to the pivot bar, that's exactly what I need, just didn't know what they're called.
