Casement lock

A home owner from Carmel, New York says:
I am looking to replace casement locks. My unit closely resembles your #38-036. The only markings on my unit is the U.S. Patent Number 4.674.777. Is it possible to determine if your unit will work as a replacement for mine?

Send the pictures of your part with measurements and we'll take a look at them.
A contractor from Purchase, NY says:
Regarding the discussion with the homeowner from Carmel, NY back on June 8th, 2010...
Did your casement lock # 38-036 prove to match his lock with the US Patent # 4,674,777, as I have the same one that I'm working with presently.

If you can, upload a few photos of your casement lock so we can take a look and help you identify a replacement.
A home owner from Baltimore, MD says:
How the the front trim piece (I'm assuming it's a separate piece which hides the screw holes) attach to the lock mechanism? Does it just snap on?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
The trim piece is not removable, it is a part of the lock housing. The lock is screwed in from behind with a #8 x 1/2" pan head screw.

Submit a few photos of your lock so we can take a look and make sure you're ordering the right part.
