Andersen operator covers with no screws

A quick learner from Carmel,NY says:
The cover I have for my Andersen operators has the hole for the crank in the center of the cover but there are no mounting holes on either side like the one that you show. I have 2 different casement covers on the same bay window.. they were like that when we bought the house, they both say Anderson, the hole is in the middle and one cover has 2 holes on each side of the cover for mounting, the other cover says Anderson also, but has no mounting screw.
Do you have the ones I described?

I believe if you where to remove the cover, you would see the mounting screws below it. This is how Andersen used to make their operator covers. Newer covers now have the screw holes exposed. You should remove the operator from the window to get a good look, just in case. Either way, the newer version should still work for you.
