I need a latch as shown. it mounts right at the end of the top of the lower sash. The latch has a curved area to cleat the cover that goes over the spiral balance. How do you remove the latch? The one shown is one that is not broken.

I also need pivot blocks. I have attached a photo. the balance looks like your 600 series with the red tip...9/16 diameter. I don't know if I should choose the 17/32 or 1/2" model.

I will need to see a few pictures of the tilt latch in order to identify it. Looks like you just have a picture of the shoe. As for that, look at our 15-046 and see if this is a possible match. You are going to have to carefully compare the dimensions we show to your own part and see how well they match. The two most important dimensions are the width and thickness.

Thank you. I recommend that you look at our 26-264 and 26-263 and see how closely their specs match your own. To remove the old latch, you will need to pop it out with a flat-head screwdriver.
