SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

window guides

A purchasing agent from Dilworth UMC Church says:
2 1/2 inches from hole to hole
3 1/2 inches long
1 1/4 inches wide

left/right adjustable/reversible

Writing on it says "tilt safe". No marking on the actual windows themselves
The current guides have "reversible" directions. The springy things with the angle at the end can flip over and make it a right/left version.

In December, I ordered 50 26-078 guides from Swisco that I thought would work and they did not for two reasons. One: they are all left side guides and two: the holes are not in the right place.

SO, I need to return the 50 guides I purchased and I would like you to tell me which ones I need to buy to fit my needs for both sides of the window.

Don't worry, I am just the researcher and one who orders, someone handy will be installing them!

Thank you!

Thanks for posting, Kelly! Based on these images and your dimensions, I think you should consider our 26-215 tilt latch. These are neutral, and so can be used for both the left and right hand side.

Will the holes be in the right place too?

The hole spacing for the 26-215 is 2-1/2", which I see is the same for yours. You can see this, and all other dimensions for the 26-215, by visiting its page.
