Hey, Fredia. Check out our 26-436 and let me know if this is what you're looking for.

Thank you so much. Is there somewhere I can get instructions to install the new latch? 26-436

I'm afraid we do not have any specific instructions for this part, but I believe that you unscrew the two bottom frame screws, pull off the bottom rail, and then slide out the latch with the spring.
A quick learner from Reno, NV says:
Done and done. I was nervous about getting aggressive with it but just pulled the rail off and easily replaced. All installed and working great. Thanks!
