Tilt latch ID

A home owner from Fresno, California says:
I just took pictures of my broken Merzon window slide latch got the lower window.

The windows have latches on both the right & left sides mounted inside a top of the window track.

The latch appears to measure 3 1/2 inches long IF it were intact the body is 3" long and the tip is 1/2" long

The latch unit appears to be 1/2 inch wide

I measured all parts

I have 20 WINDOWS (!!) with broken latches because Merzon Windows here closed & they manufactured the windows here: in Fresno, California.

Thank you for posting. I'm afraid we don't have an exact match for this latch. To be honest, 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!
