tilt latch 26-195

Hi. I just received the new tilt latchs for a couple of windows. The problem I'm having is when I put the screws in and then pull the small lever to open the latch it locks up and wont release until I remove the screws. I have tried all 3 of the new ones and they all act the same. They are the correct size. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Rick

I have figured it out. The ones that were on it were a different size, so new holes were used. When I attempted to use the correct (original) holes, the newer holes (because each hole had a ridge around it) were causing all the trouble. I took a razor scraper and got the ridge scraped off to make a flat surface.
