airmaster window metal clip

A professional from warminster pa says:
I have an old airmaster aluminum window that uses the 300 series balance with the 15-011 shoe attached. On the window jamb is a metal clip. I refer to it as a take out clip. The shoe slides underneath it so you can remove the sash. Im looking for the metal take out clips. Can you help ???

I'm not sure exactly what this clip is. Could you show me a picture of it? Thanks!
A professional says:
I dont have a picture. The clips were missing. I attached a drawing. These windows are probably 40-50 years old.
User submitted a diagram of a window balance.

Thanks for clarifying. For old Air Master aluminum widows, they usually use our Series 300 but with a 15-013 shoe. The top sash guides could be our 18-028. Those metal retainers are no longer available, I'm afraid. but our 16-008 might work for Air Master. See what you think.
