A home owner from Alamo, California says:
I have four security screen doors that are about 20 years old. The doors are in great shape but, the locks are beginnning to fail. I have had no luck so far in finding replacement hardware...hope you can help. The name on the door stickers is: Ideal Security Hardware. Am attaching photos.
Thanks for you help!

Thanks for posting.

Can you please provide us with the measurements of the door? Ideally, we would need the measurements between screw holes.
A home owner from Alamo, Ca says:
This is at our vacation home. Will send measurements next time I am there.
A home owner from Alamo, California says:
The measurements of the openings are as follows:
There are three round openings and one oval.
The overall measurement from top to bottom is 5 1/2 inches.
The first two openings are round, from center to center is 1 3/4 inches.
From bottom of second circle to to of oval is 1 1/4inch.
The oval is 15/8 inch opening. The last circle is immediately below the oval and 1/2 inch in diameter.
The entire group of openings are 3/4 of and inch from the doors edge.

If you need further information please let me know.

Thank you for your assistance with this. If you have a product that will work, I am interested in purchasing four.

Thank you,

Hi, I wanted to let you know we are still working on this. Unfortunately the replacement set we thought could possibly work for you doesn't look like a good fit. We are still trying, if you can hold on longer we are still working to come up with a possible solution for you.

Ah Ha! I need one of these too!
Please let me know when you can post these online. The one I have is a bit more decorative. It's 'hammered' antique brass/bronze.
A home owner from Alamo, CA says:
Thanks. We will hold on until you find a solution.
