I need these tilt window latches they come from replacement windows that are 30 yrs old They are plastic. another company sent me them in metal they don't fit correctly and when you make up the back screw (clostest to center window lock it jams the spring) previously they sent me the same exact ones in plastic worked perfectly

Thanks for contacting us. Can you please confirm the distance between the installation holes and the total width? That will help us find what you need.

Thank you. How about the 26-176 and 26-177? These have a hole spacing of 2-7/16", when measuring the holes from center-to-center. They also have a width of 1-1/4" and a front hole offset of 5/8". Could they work for you?
