Hey there!

Can you write out the distance between the two installation holes on your sash lock, measured from center to center? That will help me narrow down some options.

2".. also.. since I removed the latch, the existing screw holes are now blocked by some sort of metal plate that has shifted under the external surface.

We don't carry a sash lock in this style with 2" hole center spacing but our 90-274 and 90-278 are similar in design. The 90-274 measures 2-1/4" on installation hole centers and the 90-278 's measures 2-1/16" on hole center spacing. Double check your dimensions and compare them to ours to see if one of these matches up to your old lock. 

As for the metal plate, it sounds like the window frame is skewed so you'll have to find a way to un-skew it. Otherwise, you'll need to get a new sash. I apologize we can't offer a better solution.
