Plastic Window Latch

A home owner from Miami, FL says:
I'm trying to locate a replacement for the window latches in my home; see attached photo. About 2" wide, white plastic and similar to your 90-267 and others in photos on your site. They are very common in this area, but no one sells just the replacement latches... And how do you slide the replacement in if there is not enough side wall clearance to do so?

It's hard to tell what you have based on this picture. Before you order our 90-267, first remove the sash and slide off an old latch. Preferably a broken one, since you could damaged a good one. Then, send us a few pictures of its cross section so we can better see its shape. Thank you!
