SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

screen latch insert

A handy person from Huntsville, AL says:
the screen latch engages into a plastic insert (approx. a half inch long and a half inch deep) that is pressed into a slot milled in the sash. Do you know the correct name for that insert, and do you stock it or know where I can purchase it?

Could I see a picture of your screen and the clip in question? This will help us identify the part you need.

I happened to stumble across the item in an unrelated search. It is a screen strike for a casement window (item 5 in the attached image).
