Hole to Hole Dimension
When trying to determine what lock or keeper you need, the first thing you'll want to measure is the center hole to center hole dimensions. This may be different for your lock and keeper, so be sure to measure both. This measurement is crucial to choosing the correct lock. If you no longer have your lock or keeper, you can determine this by measuring the distance between the holes in your sash.
The next thing you're going to want to measure is the overall length and width of your lock or keeper. This will help you determine whether or not the lock or keeper will fit onto your sash.
