The operator is exactly like


But my measurements for each arm are 4" each.

This lock looks a lot like our 38-090. Check it out and let me know if you agree.

As for the operator, are the sizes of the arms the only difference, or is the connector different, as well? Can we see few pictures of your operator removed from the window? That will help us come up with a better replacement.
A quick learner from nj says:
Thanks Tom,

INdeed the lock looks like 38-090 and the hole pattern matches up but... what are the other dimensions? Handle length and tab. please see above?

Regarding the operator I have included pics. I removed the mounting piece from the clip and the holes seem to match up on the arm where the clip mounts. Will I need a new clip or can you bend the tab without trouble?

thanks. Ralph

Great, these pictures are perfect. Have you seen our 39-318 and 39-317 yet? These might be closer. Check them out and let me know what you think.

As for the 38-090, the length of the handle doesn't matter so much. However, the length of the inside tab, from the base to the tip, is approximately 1-11/16".
