Thanks for contacting us, Craig. I'm not sure what you mean exactly when you say "latch." Do you mean the strip of metal installed in the jamb that the 82-226 secures to? If so, this part is known as a "keeper." There are a lot of possible keepers that can work with the 82-226, and I am not sure which you need. A few examples are our 89-020, 89-021, and 89-021D. Do any of these look familiar? If not, please take a few pictures of the lock and jamb (where the keeper installs) and we can try to work from there.
