We may be able to help, but I can't tell what you have. Take a look at your thumb lever and measure the total width of the two "forks." Knowing that, we may be able to locate a decent replacement. Thanks!

The tilt latch/lock is 2 3/4" length,5/8" width 3/16" thick.
Thumb lever is 3/8" width at forks.
Would like both right and left sides of window.
Thanks,
Marty

Thank you. The thumb lever appears to be a match for our 26-223, but we cannot find that inside latch. You may want to consider replacing your tilt system with a surface mounted tilt latch. In fact, it looks like someone already did that on the other window. Watch the video below to see how.

This is a great option and will install the surface mounted latch. Thank you for your help and valuable advice.
