It would depend on many factors. If possible, please send us a few photos of the storm window and the corners and we can recommend a solution. Please also provide dimensions of the frame as best as you can; specifically, thickness and width. Thanks!
A home owner from Raleigh,, NC says:
The dimensions seem to bbe 1.25" legs with a 0.20" key diameter. The thickness of the window assembled appears to be .375", while the key maybe around .125' Attached are some photos of both broken and good window units.

Take a look at our 95-191 top tilt corner key and see if this can work for you.
A quick learner from Raleigh says:
Thank you. Do you have any tips of how to remove/install the key? Specifically after prying the old out, how is it best to ensure the key stays in after prying. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
