The vinyl window jamb spreaders sold by either swissco or strybuc are the very same jamb spreaders and are worth every penny especially if you have more than just one vinyl window in need of pivot shoe replacement.  You can indeed  notch a “one-off” window however depending on how steady your hands are will determine how unsightly the notches will end up.  At the end of the day it boils down to aesthetics, number of vinyl windows in need of repair, factoring in time, etc it made sense to purchase this set of $148 jamb spreaders.  I have over 20 vinyl windows installed in 1986 which have been carefully maintained for almost 30 years however yearly cleanings and normal wear and tear have taken their toll.  Pivot shoes wear out, pivot bars either break or in my case rust out leaving the inevitability each and every window will require repairs.  Jamb spreaders are worth every dollar, make a difficult inconvenient repair a little bit less stressful.

Obviously, they prevent easy entrance into your home. But a large part of their effectiveness is psychological: Burglars prefer to work quickly, quietly, and they don’t like complications. Simply the sight of burglar bars is enough to discourage most home invaders.

Thank you, Christine – very detailed and helpful answer. I looked at jamb spreaders early on in the process. They are expensive and the manufacturer of the window discourages their use. I'm afraid this is an issue to which there is not a fully satisfactory answer. The current version of the windows (which is actually high quality) includes notches with cover-up sections.Dick Thank you, Christine – very detailed and helpful answer.
