Tilt Latch

A home owner from Ellicott City MD says:

I have 2 broken tilt latches on the right and left side. These are patriot windows built by Ryan Homes.

The measurements of the latch are:

5/8" by 2 5/8"

Start by looking at our 26-263 and 26-264 tilt latches. However, I recommend that you remove yours from the window to confirm that these match.
A handy person from Maryland says:
Thank you! How do I remove them safeley? How will removing them help me determine if they match?

First, see the video below about removing your latches safely. As for why it would help, it's so you can carefully compare your dimensions and style to the information we have for the parts I suggested. That way you can be sure that they're the same.
A quick learner from Maryland says:
the ones you sent measure 3/4 but the piece on my old window is 11/16th. Do you still think it would work?

Yes, I don't think that difference will matter so much.
