SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Latch receiver doesn't stay in place.

A quick learner from Princeton Jct says:
I've got a reasonably new Andersen sliding patio door - about 3 years old. The door is in good shape except the latch receiver no longer stays in place - it slides down about 1/2 inch so that it does not align w. the latch. What do I need to do to fix it/replace it. I currently am holding it in place by a piece of tape - and that works fine.

Thank you for contacting us in regards to your latch receiver.

Before I can offer a suggestion on how to fix your current latch or recommend a replacement latch, I will need to see a photo of your original latch hardware. Please submit photos of your current latch with dimensions. Please be sure to include any markings you may find on the latch or on the door itself.

The latch receiver is 5.5 inches long. Pictures attached of both components.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,
I believe I may have found the needed replacement hardware.
Is this for a four panel patio door set?
