ACAN Window Locking Bracket

A handy person from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada says:
ACAN WINDOWS have gone out of business. In my locking bracket, the little flat bars that put tension on the pivoting locking latch are coming out. Do you know how to eliminate this or do you know where I can get replacement brackets from?

The lower bracket ( company name )
Middle bracket ( flat bars in correct position )
Top bracket ( flat bars are coming out )

We may be able to help. I don't know if you'd be able to repair the mechanism in the lock if they're shot, but we carry a wide variety of locks with a somewhat simpler design that may be better for you. Can you just tell me the distance between the two installation holes, center-to-center?
A handy person from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada says:
The distance between mounting holes are :
2 1/16" ( centre to centre )and the distance from the front of the latch to the centre of the holes are: 11/16".
