Thank you for posting in our discussion board, Dan. Before I can recommend a replacement, can you first tell me what the total width of the hinge is? Thank you!
A contractor says:
Thanks Dave,

The width is 15/16"

Thank you, Dan. We are currently investigating a possible replacement, but I just have two last questions for you. First, what is the thickness of the track? Second, do you know if this hinge requires a shim when installed in your window? If so, what is the thickness of that shim?

Hopefully that is the last bit of information that we need. Let me know!
A contractor from Goleta CA says:
OK Dave,

The hinge is 7/32" thick.
No shims required in mounting this hardware.

Thanks,
Dan
