Casement Sash Lock catch

A home owner from Bloomfield Hills, MI says:
I am missing one sash lock catch for my casement window. The mounting holes are 1-3/8-inch on center. The tang projects out about 9/16-inch from the window frame. The tooth on the tang is only about 1/4-inch long and slightly less wide.

Do you have this part?

Take a look at our 38-079 and double check the projection of the hook on yours. I believe this might be the keeper you're looking for.

Hold the phone, Dave: on Nov. 26, before I sent the photo, Tom said, "The 38-079 keeper is specifically meant to be used with the 38-097 and 38-098 locks. If you have a different lock, I wouldn't advise using this keeper." I agree that it might be worth trying the 38-079 if one of you would tell me what the projection is on the 38-079 (the drawing on the website doesn't show it.) I need about 9/16-inch.

The projection of our 38-079 measures 7/8" from the bottom of the base to the bottom of the "hook". I also pulled one out of stock to measure the bottom of the base to the top of the hook and came out with 1". Tom was right, this keeper is the match for those locks.
