New Tilt latches

A home owner from USA says:
I need to order a few tilt window surface locks like the one in picture below.

Which part should I order?

The width is 1 and 7/16

BTW, I prefer a slide button like 26-078 rather than the button/hole like the existing one.

I am guessing none of your parts fit exactly and 26-320 is the closest, but I would have to drill another hole to use it, which I guess is feasible.

It's hard to tell what you have. It looks like t he distance between the hole centers is 2". Can you confirm? That is the most important dimension in this case. If so, I don't think either the 26-078 or 26-320 would be a good match, but let's just make sure before we recommend anything. Thanks!
A home owner from east brunswick says:
The distance between the hole centers is 2 inches and 7/8 of an inch. The width is 1 and 7/16. Height is 3/8. You seem to be confusing a locking mechanism that looks like a screw, but the screws are the philips head ones.

Thank you! Based on these dimensions, I think our 26-320 might be your best bet. Like you said, though, it may require a bit of a retrofit.

Thanks, these parts fit exactly.
