Replacement Tilt Latches

I have two issues I could use assistance with. I am trying locate bronze tilt latches. They measure 1" w 3". I have attached a picture. I am also ordering the pivot shoes and spiral balances for these windows. I also have a small issue with the 15-219 pivot shoe. The original shoe has a "recessed area on the back side approx. 1/2" high 1/8"deep to allow movement over the "weld" in the track at the bottom. I am planning on shaving the shoe to allow for full travel. If there is a different shoe I should use, please advise.

Tilt latches are top priority, I can woek with the shoes if necessary.
Thank you in advance!

Thanks for posting! We do not carry an exact match for the tilt latches you are searching for, unfortunately. However, I believe either our 26-078 (and its opposite 26-079) our 26-228 (and its opposite 26-229) may be worth considering as a replacement. Compare the dimensions from your latch to these latches to determine if either of them might be a fit.

I'm sorry to say that neither of these is available in bronze. Please let me know if the measurements are not a match.

In regard to the pivot shoe, to determine if the 15-219 is the right replacement, I'll need to see a photo of your existing pivot shoe removed from the window. I'll especially need to see the area on the back of the shoe you are referring to as well as the other details of the shoe.

Let me know if you have any questions.
