Thumb Latch required

A home owner from Scotland says:
Good evening,

Can you supply a replacement Thumb Latch for the Sash Controls handle shown on the attached, please ? The part number of the handle is 060-154 plus a fourth number which might be a 0 or 6 or maybe even the letter C.

The thumb latch has the part number 760

Thanks, Colin

Hey, Colin. I'm having a bit of trouble finding this. Could you confirm the distance between the two installation holes, center-to-center? That would be a huge help.
A home owner from Scotland says:
Good evening and thank you for your reply. The fixing holes are 10cm apart.

I am also attaching photos of the (broken) thumb latch.

Regards, Colin

Thanks for getting back to us. I'm afraid Sash Control is no longer in business. I would suggest considering something like our 82-035 or 82-069. Both of these handles have a "floating" turn lever, which means you can place it in any position on the handle to fit your door (top, bottom, or middle). We also carry the 82-107 turn lever kit in white, but not sure if it will fit your existing handle. You might be better off purchasing a complete handle set.
A professional from CA says:
82-100 is another option. You would have to use self tapping screws to attach it. You could replace the self tappers with flat heads after tapping. I've done this with good results.
A home owner from Scotland says:
Thanks for your response.
82-107 looks alright. Is it powder-coated onto white-metal/aluminium ? In which case I could easily remove the paint so it matches the handle.

How long is the lever-pin ?

If it's any help, it has to engage with an Adams Rite mortice hook lock.

Great, glad to hear it. The lever pin is approximately 1-13/32" long. It is powder-coated zinc.
