SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

26-122 Vent Lock measurement, will it work?

A handy person from Window says:
My question is about the tolerance of the length of the vent lock.
The cutout opening for your 26-122 vent lock is pictured in the drawing as 1 29/32" in length.
My windows cutout opening measures 1 27/32" so the difference is 2/32".

What I need to know is the 1 29/32 true or is there some wiggle room to fit the lock into my smaller opening?
I've loaded pics of the lock and opening.
Thank you,

Hi Jeff,
Yes, the replacement part is SWISCO product code 26-122, Vent Lock.

Our 26-122 has retainer legs on the ends while your original has retaining points on the side; these parts are interchangeable.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I thought your 26-122 would work, but I needed to verify it.

Thank you,
