Need help finding this part as well as identifying who made my windows. There are stickers which begin with Blue then 5 numbers. Second line says Coastal Home I Carver, MA. Third line says white weldtuff. Any info much appreciated!

Good morning! Thanks for posting. This looks like the inside portion of a latch. Is there a housing that goes with this, or does this go on the inside of the sash frame?
A quick learner from Massachusetts says:
Thanks for the reply. This is a tilt latch. It's internal, held in place by a cap spanning the length of the sash

Ah, I see. I've been looking all over, but I can't find anything quite like this. From what you've described, it's possible that this is a custom made latch unique to the manufacturer. You might have to go to them for an exact replacement.

Alternatively, you could maybe drill a few holes and see if you can use surface mount latches like our 26-194 & 26-193 as substitutes.
