Looking for the correct pivot shoe.

A landlord from Eastpointe, Mi says:


My 20 year old tilt windows take a 26-297 pivot bar, which has a channel that is 1/4" wide and 3/16" tall. I can't seem to locate the 9/16" pivot shoe with that size opening. The ones I ordered were 15-173. The opening in them is too big.

Thank you,

Hi there, Jim. Would you be able to upload a couple of photos of the pivot shoe in question? We want to make sure we offer a replacement based on your measurements.

A quick learner from Michigan says:
Here are the pics of my existing pivot shoe. The overall size of the pivot shoe matches the dimensions of pivot shoe 15-173. What doesn't match is the size of the opening for the pivot bar.

Thank you.

You didn't mention what the size of the opening for the pivot bar is, but just at a glance I'm reminded of our 15-211. Could this be what you're looking for? Go over our dimensions and see what you think.
