lock & keeper 90-173

A quick learner says:
I see the Spec's on the keeper but what are the center to center spec on the lock. This looks exactly like the set I need for my milgard windows?

Hello, The lock also measures 2-1/4" on installation hole centers. Do you think this could work for your repair?
A quick learner says:
I guess not the center to center on my lock is 1 1/16" .the catch is 1 1/4" center to center everything you have seems to match on the oc's

The 90-278 set is a popular 2-1/16" lock set and the keeper has slotted holes. The only thing is, it has a deep backset on the lock, measure your backset to see if this could work. If not, we would be happy to keep working on this.

Thanks for all the help. Looked at that. will any of the locks work with the 90-282 flush keeper I can adjust the holes if need be as long as the lock will work.

The 90-282, recessed keeper, mounts to the face of the upper sash frame, much different mount than the 90-173 and 90-278 keepers. Please feel free to post images of what you currently have or a rough drawing with the dimensions attached for us to research. We have a few locks online already that have 2-1/16" hole spacing but if you have something different than what we offer we can look into bringing in something else for you.
A quick learner says:
The keeper looks very similar to 90-282 the lock set has A 2 1/16" oc and a 7/16" back set ? this is a horizontal slide milgard window

Thank you, that is a huge help. See our 90-161 window lock. This may be a better fit. The original keeper is no longer available, so we suggest the 90-282 keeper as a substitute.
