Hello again! Sorry to hear you're having trouble. I've come across this issue before. I'm afraid your exact shoe is no longer made, and we do not have a pivot bar that can work in your window and also the new shoe. Fortunately, the solution is easy. You will need to remove the cams on your old pivot shoes and swap them out in the new shoes. That should let your old pivot bars work in the new shoe.

Hmm... seeing as how the pivot bar is die cast metal, see if you can file down the top and bottom flange to smooth out the pivot bar. That may work.
