We don't have an exact match for this latch, but our 26-195 and 26-196 might work. I measured from the center of the front hole to the edge of the latch and its very close to 1/2". You would just have to redrill for the back hole.
A quick learner says:
I ordered them.
With respect to "redrilling the back hole"...would that be:
1. Redrilling the hole in the latch?
or
2. Redrilling the hole in the window frame?

thank you very much

You would want to redrill the hole in the window sash frame. Just be very careful when you do so, as you do not want to break the glass.
