SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

pound in pivot bar

A home owner from Illinois says:
I am looking for replacement pivot bars that match the attached pictures. It looks like P/N 26-271 might work. Does it have a catch on top that would hold it in the frame? How far back is the catch. My picture is of the broken bar,so it did have an end with a lip.

Thanks for contacting us. I'm not sure if the 26-271 can work based on your pictures. The shape of the body certainly looks close. Is the tip that goes into the pivot bar the same?
A quick learner from genoa,il says:
The tip that goes into the pivot bar is different. Mine are flat and are left or right specific. I thought this was the replacement and would work for either side.
Does your bar have a raised top to hold it in the frame? How far back is it?

I'm not sure what you mean when you mention a raised back. The body of the 26-271 looks just like your first batch of pictures. The only difference I can see is in the tip. I feel like it could still fit in the shoe regardless, but if not could you possibly just file one of the horns off?
