Tilt Latches Help

A home owner from USA says:
I am looking for replacement tilt window latches for Castle double hung vinyl windows. Visually and dimensionally, they most resemble your 26-228/229 parts. However, mine are 1-11/32" wide, 2-3/32" hole center, and have a 3/16" diameter boss that sticks out the bottom about .100. Hole diameter is 3/16". There are no identifying numbers or name on them. Do you have anything that will work?
Thank you,

I think you might want to look at our 26-120 and 26-121. Are these closer? They used to come in with a screw boss, but they can used without it. If you're still not sure, please upload pictures of your tilt latch and we can work from there.
A quick learner says:
Here are pics (I hope)of my latches, with the ends broken off. The screw boss on the bottom is 5/16" diameter, with 2-3/32" center-to-center holes. Both the 26-120/121 and 26-228/229 are very similar, with the 26-228/229 a bit closer due to the overall length. However, both of them have 2-1/8" center-to-center, not the 2-3/32" that I require.

Thank you. Looking at these pictures, I think our 26-120 and 26-121 are our closest matches. I'm afraid we don't have a tilt latch in this style with 2-3/32" hole center spacing, so I cannot guarantee that it will work, but 2-1/8" may be close enough.
