Screen latch for Andersen

A home owner says:
I'm looking to replace the latches on my Andersen insect screens. The screens were made in 2004. The latches are plastic, held on by a metal screw, clear, and shaped like a flag. Unfortunately, the weather seems to weaken the latch and the flag shaped end breaks off and the screen won't stay in the window. Are such screen clips still made? Where can I find some?

I'm having trouble visualizing what you have. Can you take a few pictures of it so we can find a good match? Please also provide dimensions. Thank you!

Having trouble finding replacements for this part on my insect screen. The windows are Andersen and were installed in 2004. I checked with Andersen and they do not recognize the part. The problem is, since its plastic and exposed to weather extremes, the part gets brittle and breaks and the screen won't stay in the window.

Thanks for getting back to us with a picture! This looks like our 70-208 Peachtree screen latch. Check it out and let me know if you agree.
