SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Pivot Bar Size

A home owner from Greenville, MI says:
Will this Coil Housing Pivot work with Pivot Bar 26-068? This bar seems to be what I have. (5/16" x 3/16" end) I beleive I have the Series 180, but on mine where the Pivot Bar goes is Light Blue like your Pivot Shoe 15-015 instead of Black. If it won't work, please steer me in the right direction!

The 15-087 Coil Housing Pivot is use with a coil balance and the 15-015 Pivot Shoe is used with a spiral balance.

Can you submit a photo of your hardware so we can take a look?

The first picture is of the set that works & is still in the window frame. The picture of my Coil Housing Pivot is of the side that goes against the window frame. The sides are raised up about 1/16". The side that faces out is flush. I need a new Coil Housing Pivot (it's cracked) and the Tandom Coil Housing that goes with it. (Mine is in a million pieces!)I also need the balances because there are pieces of the Tandom Coil Housing wound up in the balance coil! I read that it's best to replace both balances when in a tandom application.

The pivot bar looks a bit like the Swisco 26-040 Pivot Bar (the manufacturer may have drilled an extra hole). The pivot shoe replacement would be the 15-087 Coil Housing Pivot Shoe.
