Hello, I'm in need of 3 tilt latches for my older Nu sash vinyl windows. These are the specs and a photo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1-1/4" long
5/8" wide
The prongs are 1/8" wide
The gap outside to outside is 1/4"
The depth of the prongs are 3/8"

Thank you!

We don't have an exact match but look at our 26-001. Do you think you could get this to work?
A home owner from Cincinnati says:
Thank you! It might work. I wonder if I can remove a Set of prongs.
Thanks!
A home owner from Cincinnati says:
I tried these but the prongs were not long enough. Do you have longer prongs?

I'm sorry to hear it didn't work. Unfortunately, that was the closest possible match we had. You may want to consider substituting it for a surface-mounted tilt latch.

Thank you!
How do I know which one to purchase?

Well, it depends. There are a lot of possibilities, but you want to ensure that you have the space on your sash to install the latch. That's the most important thing. There is no one guaranteed latch, you will have to use your best judgement.
