A home owner from Grand Junction, CO says:
Need to replace the latch on my sliding screen. I could not find a part number, but the part has the CWS marking on it.

Thanks for posting. I don't often see this kind of lock on a screen. If possible, can you show us a clearer picture of the undamaged lock shown in your first picture? Can you also give me your measurements? Specifically, I'd like to know its width and the distance between the two screw holes, measured from the center of each hole. Thanks!
A home owner from Grand Junction, CO says:
Here are two more pictures. Hope these show you more of the latch.

Distance between the screw holes, center to center, is 2 1/4" and the width of the latch is 5/8".

The screens are a set of four which slide into place and are secured by these latches. Do not know how old they are as they were here when we purchased the house two years ago. No info from the previous owners.

Thank you. The closest matches we've been able to find comes down between 90-005 or 90-009, depending on the style of the "tongue." I'm afraid these do not come in left or right. Could these possibly work?
A home owner from Grand Junction, CO says:
Okay, so you think one or two of your latches might work. But you did not send a picture of either one. How am I to decide which one will work? Please send pictures so that I may decide.

I supplied two links in my prior post which you can click on. They'll take you to each part's respective store page, which have all the information you need. There are also two links on the right side of this page you can use that work the same.
