Simonton windows

A contractor from Va Beach, VA says:
Hello. This is John from Atlantic Glass and Mirror. I have a customer that would like a bunch of balances, locks, etc replaced. I've looked on your website and sending you pics seems the easiest. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you.

We can definitely help with these parts, though there is a small catch. Before I get into that, see our 15-192 shoe, 15-156 cover, 15-157 drum, and finally the Series 170 and Series 171 springs. These parts will work for you, but the issue is that they're Certainteed brand, not Simonton.

This is due to the style of the pivot bar. Your older broken part is replaced by the modern 26-336, but the 26-336 and the Certainteed 15-192 are not compatible. Normally we recommend just reusing the metal cam from the old shoe, but yours looks pretty beat up and that may not be possible. As a result, you may need to shave down the tip of the 26-336 pivot bar so that it can fit in our shoe. Just something to keep in mind.

Otherwise, these parts should work perfectly well for you. The video below goes into more detail as to how they all work together.
