tilt sadh lever and air bent lock

A home owner from Pasadena MD says:
Hi swisco
We are looking for a 1 1/4" Long x 1/2" wide airvent lock as pictured and a 1/2" wide by 1" long tilt window sash release lever as pictured. I cannot take them out without breaking them to get more measurements. Can you identify these please? We are selling our house and we have several windows missing these parts.
Thank you!

Thanks for posting, Debbie. It looks like your window was manufactured by Slocomb. We don't have the exact hardware you show here, but start by looking at our 26-107 vent lock. This may be a good substitute.

For the tilt latches, you may be better off substituting with a surface mount tilt latch. These are different than the others in that they just screw on. We have a video tutorial that shows how we do this. We find it to be an easier solution for sashes like yours. Let me know what you think!

You guys are geniuses! These solutions will work perfectly! I am amazed!

Please tell me what size screws i will need to install the tilt latch lever. I did not realize that they did not come with the screws.

Thank you again so much!
