replacing window face keeper

A home owner from Kokomo, Indiana says:
I need to replace the window latch face keeper on two of my windows because the piece that holds the lock has broken off. I am unsure how to attach the new part. The old latch is not secured with screws. I have attached a picture. Can you give me any help in this matter?

To remove your old keeper, you will need to drill out those rivets that hold it in. If you were to show us a picture of this keeper fully removed and tell us its dimensions, we can recommend a replacement for you!

Thank you. I'm afraid we don't have an exact match, but do you think our 90-283 could work? Perhaps you could retrofit it to your window.
