I'm afraid I haven't been able to find an exact match, either. The closest I could find is out 26-352, whose furthest hole is 1-3/4" away from the tip, same as yours. Would you be able to get that to work? If not, can you reconfirm the exact distance between the center of installation hole and the tip of the pivot bar?
A home owner from Watertown MA says:
Hi,
You were correct that I measured wrong! From the end to the center of the whole is 1 3/8. She attached image.

Thanks for your help!!

Ah, perfect. See our 26-226, this looks to be a good match.
A home owner from Watertown says:
Thanks Tom! I will place an order and let you know how it works out.

Great! Thank you for your business, we very much appreciate it. I'd love to hear how it works out!
A home owner from Gloversville NY says:
I am having the same problem replacing two pivot bars from my Comfort #6000 double hung windows. They are identical to the bars with the embossed #6 in your previous enquiry. I notice that the 22-226 is 3 1/16 in length while mine are2 11/16, isn't that going to a problem?

Would appreciate your thoughts. John J.

The channel where the pivot bar slides should be hollow, so a little extra length won't affect anything. As long as the spacing between the installation hole and the front of the pin is the same, it will stick out of the window the same way.
