    Default repairing metal "pin" on old windows and screen

    Any suggestions for repairing broken metal pin on the top side of an older window and screen. Some of top right metal "pins" (pin that slips into the track that slides the window and screens into place) are broken and we haven't been able to find anyone who repairs hardware issues like this on older windows.

    There's a "PERFECT" stamp label on the bottom left side of the window hardware, and "SEAL" stamp label on the bottom right side of the window hardware.

    We're guessing these windows are probably 50 years old, but in decent shape 'cept the screens don't fit "tight" cuz of the broken top pin.

    Any suggestions?

    Where exactly does this pin go? in the hinge?
    Can you send a photo?

    I think you must mean the old triple track storms and screens.
    If I remember correctly, replacement parts are available but you'll have to search around some to find a supplier.
    Try "aluminum storm window hardware". Several sites pop up.

    yes, these are the triple tracks with separate glass panes and a screen that slide up and down. the top pins are what hold the window and the screen "in" the track.

    as you suggested, did a search on, "aluminum storm window hardware" and many sites came up. thanx.
