White Plastic Surface Mounted Tilt Latches

A contractor from Poplar Bluff, Missouri says:
White Plastic Surface Mounted Tilt Latches for Atrium Windows Series 8100 circa 2008 and earlier with the surface mounted tilt latches.

What is the closest match you have to the dimensions on attached picture.

I need 40 Left Hand and 40 Right Hand Latches.

Confirm that the distance between the center of each mounting hole is 2" exactly. If so, see our 26-337, 26-344, or 26-435. These all may have different overall lengths than your old latches, but more importantly is the distance between the center of the forward mounting hole and the edge of the latch from which the tooth protrudes. Go over all these dimensions and see if one of these sets might work for you. Let me know what you find. 

A quick learner from Maine says:
I ordered an insert latch, 26-287, but its mate has been discontinued.

Is it possible to convert an insert latch tilt window sash to a surface mounted latch system by using something like 26-377 and drilling new mounting holes in the appropriate position through the old insert latch?

Has this been tried?

Thanks

It certainly is possible. Take a look at our video below that demonstrates converting to a surface mounted latch. Thanks for posting!
