SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Broke my Nuprime window lock

A quick learner from Plymouth, Michigan says:
Markings on back are 91 85 r. I broke part of the metal knob off the piece seen in the photograph while trying to force the stuck lock open.

Good morning! How about our 90-042? Check it out and let me know if you agree.
A quick learner says:
It looks similar, but the measurements are off. My piece is actually bigger.

Could you tell me exactly how the dimensions differ? That will help us find a better alternative.
A quick learner says:
The holes are approximately 1 and 3/4 inch apart. The length of the piece is just over 2 inches. The approximate width of the base of the piece is 1''.

We actually just added a new part to our site that may work for you. Check out our 90-176 and let me know what you think.
A quick learner says:
90-176 looks like it would be a match. I will order and see. Thank you.
A quick learner from Plymouth says:
Just an update, 90-176 did the job. However, my windows originally had a left and right latch for each window. The replacement I bought here matched my left latch. The right latch (of which I was trying to replace) would face the opposite direction. The latch I bought also appears to have no finish on it. My latches had a tan-silverish colored finish. Not a big deal, I'm happy I have something now. I just wanted to update you on how it turned out. Thanks.
A quick learner from Plymouth says:
PS the original finish may have been silver. They could just be really dirty!... I didn't have them installed.

Great! I'm glad they worked out. Let us know if you ever do need that right side latch in the future, or if you have any other questions in general. I'd be happy to help.
