Trying to find a window lock

A quick learner says:
Hi
I think this is pretty old but any chance you can locate one of these EPI locks?
Thanks

Thank you for posting. Before we can make a recommendation, I will need more information. First, please give me the spacing between the installation holes. Make sure to measure from the center of each hole, not their edges. Then, give me the backset of each hole. Thank you!
A quick learner says:
its exactly 2 inches from the middle of each hole. Now what does the backset mean?
Thanks

The backset is how far the holes are from the back of the lock.

Our 90-278 may be the closest we have. It has a hole spacing of 2-1/16" and its backset is 11/16". I was not able to find a lock in this style with a 2" spacing. Could the 90-278 work for you?
A quick learner says:
The problem may be that the lock is set at a 90 degree angle from the latch. Does the 90-278 work flush or at a 90 degree ?
Thanks
Neil

I'm not sure what you mean. Your picture shows a lock and keeper in a normal position. Can you clarify what you mean when you say yours is at a 90 degree angle?
A quick learner says:
OK, how do I go about ordering ?

Neil, before we move forward, could you please clarify what you mean when you say yours is at a 90 degree angle?
