Window tilt latch with 3/32" clip offset

A handy person says:
I am looking for a replacement for a tilt latch that is very similar to the 26-243 item. The difference is that the bottom clip is 3/32" from the edge rather than 3/16". I could not find another item that matched the exact dimensions AND had that edge at the correct distance.

Hello! I think the 26-243 should still work, actually. The bottom clip position does matter in some cases, but more so if it goes the other way. As long as the other details match I think you should be okay.
