Window tilt latch

A home owner from Manassas, VA says:
Hi, I need some tilt latches for my aluminum widows. Attached are 2 pictures, one is that of the latch, and the other is the label on the window. Please help identify which of your tilt latches matches.

Thanks

Thanks for posting! Take a look at our 26-295 Better-Bilt Window Latch Pair. How does that look? Let me know what you think.
A home owner from Manassas, VA says:
Thanks Paul.

26-295 Better-Built Window Latch pair looks very close to what I am looking for.

However, Keller Top Tilt Latch, Product Code 26-061
and 26-062 are also quite close.

Not sure which is the right one.

I am sending you a couple more picture with mesurement for you to finalize the identification.

Thanks

Kang

Hey, Kang, thanks for getting back to us. Our 26-295 still looks closer to me, but to really know for sure you will have to slide one of latches off and compare the base prongs to our hardware.

Thanks Donna.

How can I take (slide) a latch off the Window?

Please give some detailed instruction.

Many thanks

Taking these clips out may be a bit tricky if you aren't handy. You may want some professional help.

What you would need to do is remove the sash and unscrew the top corner screws. Then you would tap the top of the frame up and gently knock the latch off. Take care, as you may have trouble getting the frame back onto the glazing and glass properly. Again, you might want professional help.

Thanks.

I got it taken off of the window. It is identical to item 26-295 Better-Bilt Window Latch Pair.

I ordered 2 pairs.
