single bar hinge set, need replacement

A home owner from 19342 says:

I have seven paradigm windows. They were installed in 2006. C-Lc60-24x48 Original Owner

5 open on one side, 2 on the other. Series 8351.

The bottom hinge arm is rusting. Is it possible to purchase a single arm hinge set for these windows. the hinge arm is 10" long.

thank you!

Hey, Jerome. I'm not sure exactly what it is you have, but it sounds like a casement window hinge. Could you use our 36-004-10? This is a stainless steel hinge set that can be used on many different casement windows. The video below will show you how.

If that's not a match, then we will need a picture of the original  hinge so that we can find you a good replacement.

Hi Tom,
Many thanks for getting back to me. Much appreciated.
I attach a couple of photos of the hinge. It is a single arm. The arm itself has a couple of rust spots. The arm is 10 inches in length. The silver attachment is 13 inches.
What do you think?

Thanks for these photos, Jerome. I think this might be a double arm hinge. The reason I say that is because I see a black slider piece on the left side of the track. It appears to be riveted to something, presumably a second arm that runs under the bottom length of the sash. You may want to confirm.

If so, then I recommend our 36-004-14. This is based on the bottom track being 13" long; we don't carry that size anymore, but the 14" version should still work as long as you replace the top and bottom at the same time.
