Replacing old Andersen casement latch

A home owner from Arlington, Virginia says:
I own a home in Arlington, VA that was built in 1940 that has Anderson Casement windows.
I want to replace one latch.

Can You help me?

Hey, Lloyd. This one is very old. Andersen suggests using one of the newer style locks. Take a look at our 38-056, along with the 38-135 keeper. You may be able to adapt this to your window. The opposite handed lock would be the 38-057. Now, these aren't exact matches to your lock, but I don't think you'll find anything like that. Carefully look over these parts and let me know your thoughts!

Thanks Dave!

I was able to disassemble the original latch, replace the pivot pin, and am able to use it once again. I will keep you suggestion for future reference.

Thanks again! Lloyd
