Remove the sash from the window. On the top ends of the sash you will see a screw, remove this screw. Gently pull off the top rail, if it is stuck you can use a block of wood and a mallet to tap off the rail from the glass. Wear safety glasses in case you accidentally break the glass. With the rail off, the latches will slide out. Slide in the new latches and line them up with the sash and gently push or tap the rail back onto the sash. Reinstall the screw and put the sash back in the window.
