Andersen Casement Lock Keeper dimensions

A home owner from Macon, GA says:
What is the length of the bent part - the tongue that goes into the lock? I bought your 38-079 keeper but the 7/8'' is too long - I need something between 5/8'' and 3/4''. 38-135 looks short.

Thanks for posting. That same dimensions on our 38-135 is approximately 9/32". Are you sure you have the 38-135? This is only used with Andersen's Perma-Shield casement windows 1979 through 1995. If you want, you can take a picture of your existing hardware and upload it here for me to look at. We can try to find a better match from there.

I know what my lock is - it is 38-014 which I bought from you last summer.

Ah, I see. In that case, you should check out our 38-051 keeper. While that lock is no longer available, the 38-051 is what was compatible with it.

Great! Thank you!
