Simonton Window Swivel

A home owner from Bellevue Nebraska says:

Good Afternoon!

Repairing broken Simonton window swivels. I ordered your 15-155 after measuring the pieces that I had of my old swivels. The outside dimensions were correct. I received them this week and installed two, but the slot in the cam, and the opening in the swivel carrier are too narrow for my window bars. In the photo is the cam that is included with the 15-155 to the right, and the cam from my window swivel on the left. Your 15-155 on the right rear, and 1/2 of one of my original swivels on the right. The shape of the carrier is perfect, the cam and cam opening is not quite right.

Any ideas?

In some cases, the cam is shaped differently than ours but you can swap the metal cam for your old ones to rectify the problem. Thank you!
