American Craftsman tilt window latches

A home owner from New Jersey says:
Good evening,

I have a recycled American Craftsman double hung window that is missing the tilt latches on the bottom window. I have attached a photo of one of the latches that still on the upper window.

May i ask what would be the replacement part for these?

Thank you.

For American Craftsman 8500 Series window, the top tilt latch for the lower sash should be our 26-408 pair. The tilt latch you are showing is used for the upper sash. 

To be positive, we would need to see another picture of the tilt latch removed from the sash. Thank you!

Thank you for your response. I ordered the part that you suggested. It worked just right and installed easily.

I also have the American Craftsman 8500 series windows and this part worked perfectly. Super easy to install.
