balance knife lock shoe 15-014

A handy person from hopkinton, ma says:
Hi Swissco,

I ordered four of your 751 channel balancers with 15-014 lock shoe. From your video, I see how the knife blade helps lock the shoe in a down position, a little away from the balancer. When I go to put the sash back in, how do I unlock the knife blade so that the shoe will press upwards against the sash? If I don't unlock it, it looks like the 26-152 cam pivot on the sash will press on top of the knife, so that the shoe will go down, but not up again.

Thanks for your help!

When you tilt the sash back into place, the cam pivots on either end of the sash should unlock the 15-014 shoe. The cam pivots resemble our 26-151 and 26-152.
