Sash Release Lever

A quick learner from Peabody, MA says:
We are looking to replace some broken sash release levers. The top measures 2.5" x 3/4". The forks measure 1/2"w x 3/8"t. Will any of your replacement parts be suitable?

Based on the size of your forks, the closest we have is our 26-119. Could this work? If not, you may be better off substituting with a surface mount tilt latch. These are different than the others in that they just screw on. We have a video tutorial that shows how we do this. We find it to be an easier solution for sashes like yours. Let me know what you think!
A quick learner from Peabody, MA says:
The height of the fork that I have is just 3/8", but item 26-119 is 7/16". That won't work, will it?

Hmmm... it's hard to say. It may not work, no. What do you think of my other suggestion?
A quick learner from Peabody, MA says:
Yes, unfortunately I think the surface mount is the only thing that will work. Thanks for your help!
