Do I have Better-Bilt window latches?

A home owner from USA says:
In my picture titled "two pieces" you can see the two different window latches I have in my house. Most of the broken ones look like the right window latch. I took pictures of both.

To me the right latch looks like Better Built Window Latch Pair product number 26-295 and the left latch looks like product code 26-333. The measurements on both latches are identical to your specs in your catalog, 15/16 inches x 1 5/16 inches for the solid square and almost 11/16 wide for the pull.

I don't know the brand of my windows and there are no markings. My house was built in the 80s. Which part do you think I should purchase? I greatly appreciate your help,

Yes, these do look like Better-Bilt windows. I kind of think you might be right about having both types, but it's hard to be sure. The sun bleached latch looks like it could be the 26-333 and the one that is black on the bottom looks like the 26-295. I wonder if Better-Bilt ran out of the one latch and started using the other. It's happened before! Either way, I think it might be a good idea to stick with what you have, unless you're willing to experiment switching them around to confirm they're interchangeable.
