Alumax Replacement Latches for Sliding Windows

A home owner from Laramie, WY says:
We have two large Alumax windows side-by-side (each approximately 68' h x 41' w). Each window has two sweep locks. One of the locks broke on one of the windows and we are not sure what size of lock we need as a replacement. The keeper looks to be approximately 2 - 3/4". Anyone have specifics details? Ideas welcome! THANK YOU.

Thanks for posting! The distance you gave for the keeper--is that from screw hole center to screw hole center? If not, can you give me that dimensions? Can you do the same for the sweep lock itself, as well? This will help us find a replacement.

Hi Paul, Thanks for the reply. The distance from the center of the screw hole seems to be 2- 3/8' for both the keeper and sweep lock. Thanks!

Thank you. It looks somewhat similar to our 90-097, but that measures 2-1/4" screw hole center to screw hole center. Do you think that might work? Can you confirm your own dimensions?
