SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Window latch by Polybau

A quick learner from Orangevale CA says:
I am missing the small WHITE METAL part on the frame which the "tongue of the latch" goes into? Size is approximately 2 9/16th x 1/4" small but necessary to lock our home up!?!?!?!?!

We bought our home last October AS IS so I am doing lost of small silly repairs like this cause the builder was in a hurry to have it finish and sold... I can do it tho!!!!

Thanks for posting! I think you can do it too. These parts are known as window lock keepers and are very easy to replace. I'm not exactly sure what you have, but I have a couple of suggestions to start with. Look at our 90-160 and 90-177 and carefully compare their dimensions to your own and see if either is a good match.

Thank you very much ~~ now how do I get WHITE screws a total of four since I have ONE of the latches already left by the 'workers' (Ha Ha Ha!! if you call them that) but no screws and need to order the second one above that you listed, 90-177 but would like to save shipping and order all that I need at ONE time, please?

You might want to check a hardware store just to be sure, but I think you could use our 33-013. If the hole is stripped, you should use the 33-016P instead. Both are available in white.
