Tilt window latches

A quick learner from Massachusetts says:
I believe these are probably the right latches for my windows (26-243 & 26-244) but there are a couple of differences I want to ask about. Cosmetically, the latches I have have a big "R" or "L" on them. No big deal,I'm assuming this is simply because yours aren't the exact brand. The measurements all look exactly the same except for the difference between the two measurements for the triangular part that retracts (the actual latch). Yours have measurements of 3/8" and 1/2". The difference in mine is far more subtle. Best I can measure I'd say they are just slightly more than 3/8" and 7/16". As I said I think these should work...My only concern would be that the (1/16") wider latch wouldn't quite fit behind the edge it needs to fit against (see photo).

I believe the 26-243 & 26-244 may work but I would like to see the housing. Can you submit more photos of the complete tilt latch?

Including both the latch assembly and the window corner it came out of. Thanks.

It looks like 26-243 and 26-244 could work as a replacement.
