Proposed Replacement for Integrated Mastic Window Tile Latches

A handy person from Bloomington, Indiana says:
Dear Sir:

Recently, I wrote to Swisco requesting assistance on finding replacement Mastic Tilt Slide Thumb Buttons. Swisco informed me that these buttons are no longer manufactured and suggested using a Surface Mounted Window Tilt Latch.

Attached is a file containing applicable measurements of my windows. Would Surface Mounted Tilt Latches 26-195 and 26-196 be the correct replacement latches for my application, and would the #8 X3/4" screws (33-090) be the correct fasteners for mounting the surface mount tilt latches? Please advise.

Thank you for your assistance

Hey, Carl, good to see you again. Thanks for the detailed information! Based on your dimensions, I think the 26-195 and 26-196 will cover the existing holes nicely. I also agree that the 33-090 is the correct screw to use.
