Viking window part

A home owner says:
I'm not sure what you would call this. One broken another window, and I need to replace it. Do you still have this part available to purchase? Thx!

This part is known as a tilt window latch. Now, I'm not exactly sure what this is, but I think our 26-244 and 26-243 could be the replacements you're looking for. Just make sure that the dimensions match up.
A quick learner from California says:
Thank you! I ordered these, and I feel like they fit, but I put them in reverse, so the window isn't sitting in place very securely. I'm thinking I need either slightly longer ones, or to just reorder another set and put them in the right way. Apparently, once they're in the only way to get them out is to break them out? Dumb on my part!!!

I'm sorry to hear that. Yes, you may break the latches when trying to remove them. I don't think getting longer latches will really make a difference, they just need to be installed normally.
