Thank you for posting! Please see our 26-403 pivot bar, 26-298 and 26-299 tilt latches, and finally our 15-152 pivot shoe. Carefully compare them to your own hardware and let me know if you think you can use these parts as replacements.
A handy person from Mahopac, New York says:
Thanks Paul! The pivot latches look spot on and the pivot shoe looks close enough. The problem is the pivot bar. I may be able to work with the 26-403 pivot bar you suggested with some modification, but please see the attached picture for what is currently installed with dimensions. I'm hoping you have something similar. Maybe I should have been more specific on the bar dimensions to begin with. Thanks!
Dimension A = Approximately 3"
Dimension B = 2 5/8"
Dimension C = 3/8"
Dimension D (to hole center) = App. 1 7/16"
Bar a little over 1/4" wide and 3/16" thick.

Ah, thank you. That information is a huge help. How about our 26-319? This looks better.
