window tilt latch difference

A handy person from Queens, NY says:
Hi, I need to replace a few window latches that have broken. The dimensions are as follows:
2-1/8 inch attachment screw holes 3/4 inch from screw hole to end of casting (not including sliding latch)
width is 1-3/8 inch
thickness is 5/16 inch

Based on your site, I see either the 26-120/121 or 26-228/229 match these dimensions. Can you please tell me the difference and advise on which one would be best to purchase? Thanks.

Thanks for posting! The major difference between the 26-120 & 26-121 pair and the 26-228 & 26-229 pair can be found in the total length of their respective housings. The 26-120 & 26-121 have housing lengths of 3-1/8", while the 26-228 & 26-229 have housing lengths of 3-1/4". How do these dimensions compare with your own?

Thanks, didn't realize that! The length of the piece I need to replace is 3 1/4", so I will be getting the 26-228/229 pieces. Thanks so much for your help!
