Pivot bars for vinyl sash window s

A landlord from Chicagi IL says:
Hi,
I'm looking for this pivot bar for vinyl sash windows. The item I need closely resembles your Item # 26-396 except that the length is only 3-1/8" instead of the 3-5/8" needed. The pivot bar has # "SB 1943" and "Patent No. 5704165" embossed when die cast. I need 12 such for replacement. Please let me know if you carry a suitable replacement.
Thanks,
Yunus

Thanks for posting, Yunus. How about our 26-129? Could this be a possible match? Let me know what you think.

Hi,
Thanks for your prompt reply.
The total length of the 26-129 is only 3-3/16" instead of the 3-5/8" in my sample. More over, the end "ears" are essential for insertion in the mating piece in the sash and locking it. Would the 26-129 still function as replacement for my sample in spite of these differences?

I think your version is just the older model of our 26-129. I don't think there will be a problem, but I've never replaced this older version before. I think our 26-129 is our closest possible match, in either event. Do you think you could get it to work?
