Patriot 1800 Series Jamb Spreaders?

A home owner from Central NY says:
Hi, have to replace some pivot shoes in these 15yr old Patriot windows. They were very popular with NVR homes. Been considering your jamb spreaders along with all the parts. Just wondering if you know if those will work on this window series? The channels seem so inflexible it's hard to imagine them bending enough to get the pivot shoe out. The vinyl window returns also seem to be connected in there somehow. I've attached some pics. Do you think they would work in this installation?

Our jamb spreaders are meant to work for most vinyl windows. If you aren't comfortable using them in yours, we have an alternate method of removal you may be interested in. See the video below.
