Better Built Window Latch

A quick learner from Silverthorne, CO says:

I need this window latch for the right side of a double-hung Better Built window. This latch releases the window so can pull window inside and clean outside of window.

As far as I can measure this latch is 3" long. 2 1/8"? hole center spacing. 1/8 inch from screw to end of latch, I think.

Please let me know if you have this latch piece for my Better Built window.

Thanks,

Chris

Hello, Chris. In terms of design your latch is very similar to our 26-195 and 26-196 . However your dimensions differ from ours. I recommend triple checking those measurements, especially the hole center spacing, to see if you might be able to use these after all.

I have ordered a couple of latches from Lowes. Waiting for them to arrive. Once received I will let you know if I have to do further exploring. Do you know if either latch will fit a Better Built window from 1999? That would be helpful to know.

Thank you,

Chris

Hello,

Tom is out of the office today but I can tell you that although past customers with Better Built windows have used these latches, that does not confirm if they will work for your application. Comparing the dimensions shown on our product pages to your original latches is the only way to confirm if they will work for your application.

What is the difference between these latches? The measurements you sent me are correct.

The only difference is that one installs on the left-hand corner of the sash, while the other is for the right side. Hope this helps!

I ordered.

Thanks so much for your help.
