SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Loose tilt latch fit.

A quick learner from USA says:
I need some of your part numbers 26-243 and 26-244. I watched your video on how to replace them. On my windows, Traco Power IIs, the tilt latches fit sloppily and not tightly as shown in your video.

They still function, but I am wondering if it is normal for these to fit loosely, or if there is a way to make them fit more tightly?

Also are these in stock?

Your top tilt latches might just be wearing out. Sometimes the ribs along the side that keep them in wear away, which would account for them being a little loose. I would also recommend removing one of your latches from the window to confirm that the 26-243 and 26-244 is a match. Traco has used both this kind and our thinner 26-390 and 26-391, which looks almost the same while installed.
