15-180 but different dimensions

A home owner says:
I have identified you product part 15-180 balance coil shoe as being what I think is the correct replacement part however, the dimensions seem a bit in question. The length is just under 2" maybe 1 15/16" and the width is 1 3/16 at the widest part lower on the shoe not at the upper location shown in the diagram. At that point it is exactly 1". Should this be of concern or have I identified the correct part? Thank you

Thanks for posting! The height doesn't matter so much for pivot shoes. The most important dimensions are the width and thickness. I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by the widest part lower on the shoe. Do you mean the width of the wings? Or the area below that?

It may be best if we see a few pictures of your shoe. This would help us find a possible substitute.

I have attached a photo of my shoe as requested. it is identical to the 15-180. The width measurement of 1 3/16" was measured as shown in the photo where the pencil is pointing.

Thanks

Thanks for getting back to us! I agree, our 15-180 appears to be the closest match we have. If there are any discrepancies in width, it may be because your own shoe is cracked a bit.
