Thanks for posting. Could I see some pictures of the tilt latch in question? Actually, it may be best to see a picture of it's partner. The less damaged it is, the better able I'll be able to identify it. Let me know!

Sorry I don't know how to remove the Traco TR500 springlatch for a better view.

2353 is the left hand side of the window. 2355, the right hand side notch and top are missing. There are no exterior screw holes in the front or top view of the window frame. Since then I've had to duct tape it during high winds.
I would appreciate if you could identify the replacement part and provide any other information about replacement.
Thank you

Ah, I see. Looks like you have interior tilt latches. These are a little tricky. You will have to remove the top from the sash in order to replace them. You may want the help of a handy person.

As for the hardware itself, I can't say with any certainty what you have while it's still installed, but I think it appears similar t our 26-001. If that is what you have, then you may also want to consider the 26-014 inside portion, as well as the 26-016 spring and 26-017 spring retainer. Again, however, I am not sure if that is what you have.

Sorry Tom,

My handyman states 26-014 I received from Swissco is to large for the Traco window. I looked at an earlier thread regarding a Traco 5000 windows dated March 6, 2013 from Lancaster, PA. That latch resembles mine. Here are views of 26-014 and the broken Traco Latch. Note that 26-014 has a channel and the Traco does not. The handyman says the parts I received can be kept for my Scientific Windows but to ask you for a better fit.

Thank you

Thanks for the extra images. Please take a look at our 26-069 sash tilt and see if this might be a better fit. I can't guarantee that it's the one you need, but it might be the best we have.
