Tilt Latch Replacement

A handy person from Sterling VA says:
I'm looking for replacements for surface mounted latches as shown in the photos. Based on my measurements, they appear to be 2-23/32" L x 1" W x 5/16" D with a hole-to-hole center distance of 1-13/16" and latch edge to hole distance of 1-5/8". Product Code: 26-410 seems to be pretty close. Do you think this will work or is there a better alternative?

The 26-410 is definitely the closest match we have without having to drill new holes. The two most important measurements are the hole center spacing at 1-13/16" and the front hole offset at 23/32". If your front hole offset is the same, then the 26-410 very well may be what you want.
A handy person from Sterling, VA says:
Unfortunately, the front hole offset is 5/8" (not 1-5/8" as in my original post) so it looks like 26-410 isn't going to work well. If I'm willing to drill new holes, do you have a latch you can recommend to meet the 5/8" front hole offset and 1" (or less) overall width?

Hmmm... the only other latches I can think of are our 26-176 or 26-337, however they're both a little wider at 1-1/8". Would you have the room for that?
