SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Lots of broken left and right side latches on combination windows.

A quick learner from Stratham, NH says:
I sure could use some help in identifying the correct latches for the storm windows that are installed in this New England home that I purchased just over a year ago. I confess I actually managed to break two of them myself! There is no name/number anywhere that I can locate. They appear to be 2 5/8 inches long without the tab, 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 thick.

Thanks, Steve

Your storm sash looks like the type that big box stores sell. When we were repairing them, we used our die cast 91-010 and 91-011 latches. They meet your dimensions, when not counting the tip. If you want me to confirm, send a photo of an undamaged latch. Otherwise, could these two work for you?

How do I get the old broken plastic latch out. Do I have to completely take the window apart? If so what are the part numbers for the corner connectors?

Yes, you will need to take the bottom rail off the sash to remove the latch. We actually have a video that may help. Check it out below.
