Various lead times may apply to this product. Please contact us for more details.

Short Press Fit Reed Switch Set, 3/8" Recessed, Closed Loop with Nickel Plated Magnets

The closed loop, recessed "shortie" Reed Switch is designed for applications where a 3/8" press to fit is needed, but space limitations will not allow for a full length to be installed. The installer is able to protect openings with this reed switch that otherwise would have to be secured with more visible surface mount configurations. Available in standard or wide gap, this series provides an easy answer to the difficult, high dollar window problems every installer encounters. You have the choice between standard or wide gap.

The reed switches are combined with our Rare Earth Magnets. Mighty Magnets make use of a rare earth alloy which allows the size of the magnet to be significantly reduced while still retaining or improving the gap involved. Mighty Mag contacts will assist in resolving the installer's problem of drilling into the new thinner vinyl windows. These rare earth magnets are less than 1/8" high and install fast and easily without worry about damage to the window itself. These rare earth magnets can be mounted with stainless steel mounting screws and/or double stick tape included in the package, or may be glued into place.

Note: Closed Loop or "normal closed" means the switch is closed when magnet is in close proximity.

Tip: We suggest using a silicone or clear nail polish sealant on the surface of installed rare earth magnets to prevent corrosion.
