I am not sure, I could not find any Andersen hardware with the part number 169341. Where did you find this part number? Are you replacing existing latches in your Andersen window screen? Can you send us photos?
A quick learner says:
Hi,

I got off the phone with Andersen just before I sent you the e-mail and that is the part number they gave me, also it is on there website

OK, I found 1693417 on their Web site. Unfortunately, their Web site does not give dimensions so I cannot provide you with a quick answer. I will need to research this further.

Before we move forward, please give us the dimensions of the clip (as shown in the 70-187 product image) so we can begin researching possible replacements. Do not include the extension piece in your measurements as you did in the image above.
A quick learner says:
My bad the dimensions are actually 1 3/8 by 1 3/8 excluding the extension piece. So, in comparison to
to product number 70-187 1 3/8 by 1 3/8. I can send a new sketch.

Take a look at the 70-174, I think it might be the Andersen screen latch you are looking for.
