Is there a left side & right side of casement lock model # 38-075? or can I use it for either a left side or right side installation?

This particular casement sash lock, 38-075, is non-handed meaning it can be used left hand or right hand.

Just needed simple instructions on how to assemble this into a door. Looks very easy. However, I seem to not be able to line up the Low Profile Sash lock with the casement window keeper. How should I view to line it up? Thank you very much for your help. Ernie

While the 38-075 is meant for replacement in casement windows take a look at the following installation diagrams to help you install the sash lock in a new application.

screws are missing - advise a suitable substitute - latch is being used on exterior patio door outswing - above and below dead bolt - door is metal exterior

Thanks for getting in touch with us. I'm a little confused. Are you saying that you have the 38-075 installed on a metal door? If so, that's a custom application and I'm not sure if we'd be able to help.

I can tell you at least that the 38-075 uses #8 flat screws, but the length will depend on the application. I couldn't even guess what length you'd need for a metal door, unfortunately.
