IWC Window Sweep Latch

A home owner from USA says:
Dear Swisco,
I am looking for a replacement sweep latch part for my IWC window. My color is black, but white would do if necessary. Prime Line made the last part I found #F-2704, but I can not find another. It has a side mount with screw holes 3 1/2 in. on center. Is there another part that would work for my IWC window that could mount from the top. I hope this is clear. Thank you for your help

This lock is actually no longer available, however the manufacturer thinks that our 90-287 could be used as a substitute. You would just have to remount the holes at the top. You will also need to use a screw like our 33-011. You don't want to use a screw that's too long, and you don't want to drill too deep, because you could damage the frame or glass otherwise.
