Old Stylr Pella Knife Latch

A contractor from Charlotte, NC says:
I'm working on the older style Pella casements that have a removable inner glass panel, instead of being a true insulated glass unit. The glass panel is framed with an aluminum channel and attached to the sash with a knife latch. The latch size and shape are different than the ones used to lock in the screens. I've attached a photo. Please let me know if this is something you can get (how much, lead time, etc.).

Thanks for your help!

Thank you for posting! I have some good news and bad news for you. The bad news is, we do not currently carry this type of latch. The good news is, we soon will! We have located a possible replacement part and will post an update on this thread as soon as the part is online and available for you to view.

Please see new SWISCO product code 70-218, Pella Screen Latch. Do you think this could work?
