SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

26-320 Neutral Top Tilt Latch, 2-15/16"

A home owner from Floral Park says:
Hi I ordered 8 of these but just want to verify that I got it right. Your site shows a pretty close match. Mine does not have the "the inside tongue can be flipped so that this top tilt latch can be used on the left or right" feature but hope that is still ok.

Thanks for posting! I agree, it does look like our 26-320 matches your own hardware. It looks like yours can be flipped, as well, though. You simply take the "tongue" out and flip it over, springs and all.
A home owner from Floral Park says:
Ok thanks. I still do not see that as there is no cutout on the other end for the triangular plastic piece to stick out of the side of the piece. I may just not be seeing it though. But I'm glad yours does both ;=)

Thanks again for the quick response!

You don't place it in the other end of the latch. The tongue stays in the same cut out, its just flipped over.
A home owner from Floral Park says:
Ok thanks. I see it just shipped. I hope it works.
It's annoying not having the tilted sash click back in. I do not know how I broke 6 of them! ;=)
A home owner from Floral Park says:
They arrived today and worked perfectly. Now I see what you mean about flipping the piece over .. Duh to me ;=)

I'm so happy these windows are now working as they should!
