guide pins for a sash window / a sash kit???

A home owner from Buffalo says:
What are these? where can we buy these? We need to replace them as these are broken.Previous owner of the old house removed the old window weights and installed these.

Thanks,

Michelle

Thanks for sending us over your image, Michelle. This sash pin was originally made by Allen Stevens from NYC. I am afraid they have gone out of business and no other company ever picked up the mold for this pivot bar. That said, take a look at our 17-056, 26-355, and 26-361 pivots as possible options of a replacement. See if you could make either of these work for you. Best of luck,

Thanks for getting back to us with your update! We're glad to hear the 26-355 worked out for you. Good luck with the rest of the windows, too.
