Pivot Shoes

A handy person from Howell, MI says:
I have old windows, mfr out of business (Home Window of Fostoria, OH) at my church. I have determined I need S600-29 & 31 balances. I can not identify the pivot shoes. It is 1.271" across the top width, 1.250 across the bottom width where the cam is. The cam makes the bottom go to 1.310 wide when rotated 90 degrees. The cam pocket is 5/16x3/16 with a center pin. The shoe is .546 thick. I am including pictures of the shoe to aid in selecting the correct one.

Thanks for posting.

Please take a look at our 15-015 Pivot Shoe, as the measurements seem to be the closest match.
A quick learner from Brighton, MI says:
does it make a difference that the slot is not centered, mine is. Do you think the 15-121 would work in this application? Also forgot to indicate that my old shoe is 2 1/6" long.

Although the 15-121 is close, we believe that the 15-015 is a better match.
A quick learner from Brighton, MI says:
Thanks for the answer to the 15-121.
Could you answer my question about the slot being off-center on the 15-015 and if the balance will bind when it approaches full retracted. Thanks.

The 15-015 would be the best option for replacement, despite the positioning of the slot.
