When you pull inward on the device, the plastic devices pull away from the slots on the window frame, allowing the window to be moved up or down.

The plastic devices slide horizontally on a track in the window that is 1/2" wide. The plastic device is 3 7/8" long. At the end of the plastic device, the "notch" is 1/4" wide and is formed to a 45

Look at our 91-054 latches and see if these could work for you.
A home owner from St. Louis, mo says:
i think that part 91-054 will work for me. Question: how do you remove the old part to make sure?

Is there a video demonstrating the procedure?

Thank you, Charles

Check out the video below. This features a different kind of latch, but the principle is the same. See what you think.
