Pivot Shoe for Larmco window

A home owner from Columbus, OH says:

I think the measurement on this is 2 high x 1.25 wide by .5 deep. It looks most like the 15-046 but as you can see the center is blue.

Do you know what pivot this is? I already bought some 15-154 but now see that my pivot does not have the blue part recessed.

Thank you,

If all the dimensions match, then I think our 15-046 would be a good choice. The color of the cam doesn't mean much, it's just that different manufacturers use their own color codes.

I took another look tonight and think it is really 2 1/8 x 1 1/4 x 9/16.

So would that be a 15-118?

Well, I'm not sure, that would make a difference. Are you measuring the shoe while it's still in the window? You may not get an accurate measurement that way. You should take it out before you measure it just to be 100% sure what the dimensions are.
A home owner from Columbus, OH says:
Hmmm. My Larmco window does not have a cutout to remove the Pivot Shoe to measure it. Are there instruction on how to make a cutout?

If your window does not have cut-outs already, you could use jamb spreaders like our 75-069. See the video below for instructions how. Failing that, you will have to try to carefully make a cut out yourself. If this shoe is for the top sash, make the cutout at the bottom of the jamb. If you also need one for the bottom sash, do it at the top.
