    i allways use 7/8 inch contact on metal door..
    i never have any probleme with this...on the false alarm side...
    but mecanicaly its another story..you have to be very carefull to not go too
    large or the magnet or contact will have a tendency to pop out of there
    holes...one way i fixed the trouble was to used a sligly smaller hole saw to
    drilled the hole..or used a multibit...but those are not cheap....and when
    you touch ciment with it ,you dont like it.....;-)
