These don't quite fit.

A home owner from St. Louis, MO says:
I bought the 26-120 and 121, and they don't quite fit. The holes need to be 2-1/4" C-C and overall is 3-1/2". I have quite a few that need to be replaced but I don't want to drill new holes. I could not find this exact match on your site. Would it be possible to use the ones I already bought (26-120, 26-121 and re-drill a new hole? I don't want to mess up the window!

If not, may I email you photos of my latches so you can help identify? I don't want to keep ordering the wrong ones.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Tim, thank you for contacting us.

First, take a look at the Swisco 26-044 and 26-045 latches - these appear to match the dimensions you gave us, however they are only available in black.

Black only? Wow, I have never seen black windows before!

Unfortunately the 26-044 & 26-045 is from a discontinued window. The plastics manufacture who made the parts (for the last time) made the decision to only run the parts in black. The company who manufactured the window also made commercial windows in the dark bronze color that's why they are in the color black.
