Malta screen holder replacement

A home owner from Southborough, MA says:
Here is a picture of the 70-048 replacement you sent and our original screen holder so you can see the difference.

The original style has been discontinued and is no longer manufactured.
A home owner from Southborough, MA says:
The screen holder that I ordered does not fit. Do you have others that will fit?

Sorry, but the 70-048 is currently the only Malta screen latch we carry.
A home owner from Ohio says:
I too am looking to replace a couple of Malta screen clips and noticed the post from someone from Southborough MA that indicated that the replacement clip wouldn't work. My clips are similar to the one that was pictured. Can you tell me why the one you sent the writer would not work for them?

It would seem that the replacement is near the same length and the two-prong clip would go into the window groove where the previous tab-type would have secured the screen.
