SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

26-355 is too big for me

A handy person says:
I purchased this replacement set but it is too long. Actual measurements of latches I am replacing are: 3" long by 1 1/18 wide. Any suggestions?

Thanks for posting. I'm sorry to hear that our 26-335 didn't work for you.

Could you also tell me the distance between the screw holes, center-to-center? That is one of the most important dimensions. I'd also like to know the distance between the front screw hole center to the front edge of the housing. Thanks!
A handy person says:
Measurements screw hole to screw hole are 2", and the distance from the first screw hole to the front edge of the housing is 3/4". It is much smaller than the 26-335 as shown in the attached picture.

Thank you. How about our 26-337? Would this be a better fit?
A quick learner says:
Yes, looks like that's it, thanks!
