What are these called, I have old old no name vinyl windows, and the security vent stops are done, where can I buy replacement parts?

I guess this would be to the place to buy them but I don't know what they are called?

ebay.com/itm/Set-of-10-WHITE-WINDOW-SASH-VENT-STOPS-1723WHITE-/251520301919?hash=item3a8fc73b5f

Fits most horizontal and vertical sliding window systems using this design
Fits slot 0.17"x1.063"
Solid nylon construction

I measured the slot in my sashes
H - 0.1875"
V - 1.078125"

I guess these are a match, unlesss anyone can offer a better place to buy these?

I call them night ventilation latches or ventilation latches.

If you can't find exact OEM latches and are handy enough, you could go to a larger latch if needed. Enlarging those routed slots isn't difficult at all for someone smart enough to pull precision measurements with a caliper.

I personally simply use a fresh blade in a heavy duty utility knife and some small detail files of various shapes.

I think i found them on the Blaine Parts site as well, blainewindow.com/BWH0022.php?selectpart=WB0906%20%20%20&clearance=&newitem=&wherefrom=BWH0021&page=1

I already ordered the ebay version based on it seems like the measurements match up, I will report back when I get them in. A boring fix for crap windows, but this post might help out some other homeowners ;)

Thanks,
Matt
