Does my window keeper match your 90-257?

A handy person from Utah says:
I need some window keepers. Please take a look at a window keeper video I put on youtube, seen below. It looks very close to your 90-257. There is no measurement on your product page showing the width of this item (90-257)or the opening that the latch goes into. Also, it is very important that the two mounting hole with the 7/16 centers are small, since two screws must catch into these holes to secure the keeper.

Thanks for posting, Brent, and for the great video! That was a huge help.

I agree with you: our 90-257 appears to be the closest match we have. All the dimensions appear to line up fairly well; the total width of the keeper is also 1-1/2", and the two screw holes are smaller than the center hole.

The only discrepancy that I see is the width of the slot itself. I see yours is listed as 1-1/16", but our is 1-3/16". Can you double check for me to make sure?
A quick learner from Utah says:
Thanks Tom,

I am going to order the 90-257's I think they are correct. I do believe the slot is probably 1-3/16". I don't actually have a complete unit to compare, but I took another look and it probably is the same as yours.
