where could I find old baseboard damper pivots

Cannot locate any identification on baseboards. The damper pivots are slotted with a dimple to hold them in place. Have not seen them yet on any of my searches.

There are different brands of baseboard and each have their own design. Pics would be very helpful.

I have quite a few hot-water baseboards of at least two different types. I never have reason to change the setting of the dampers. Most are left wide open. Can you get by with just setting the dampers manually, and leave them be?

Those look the same as mine. Made by American Heat Trim. I doubt you can buy them separately. Why do you want to replace the pivots?

Have been remodeling house. Have painted the baseboards and without the damper pivots the damper is not straight at all. Just really cosmetic as dampers are open all the time . Thank You

If you go to the sight below you can see if this is what you have. If you click on the arrow under the pic on the right a video will come with the dimensions of the 3 sizes they sell. This is Slant fin baseboard.

Hope this helps a little.
