window pins

A home owner from bethany ct says:
hello, this part holds the window into the sash as a hinge. They break very easily and I think this is a 25 year old home made brand window. the dimension is 2 3/8 length, 1/4 inch wide, 1/8 inch think. Any idea where I can get more? Thanks

I believe our closest match is the 26-318, which is used for old Crossbow balances like the one in the video below. I'm a bit concerned that the pin on yours is a bit larger on the 26-318, but it still may work for you. It's the closest match we have. Let me know what you think.

would it make sense for me to buy a set for one window and give it a shot? what would you need from me now?

I'm also concerned that the pin on our 26-318 won't be long enough, but it is our closest match. I think in a worst case scenario you'd have to drill a new hole for it to work, but understand that any hole drilled in the pivot bar itself would mean that you cannot return it for a refund if it still ends up not working.
