    Hi All,

    I'm needing to obtain just the magnet half of reed switches so I can
    set up our windows so they can be open a little and still be covered
    by the alarm. Obviously I would prefer not to have to buy complete new
    reed switch pairs if I can avoid it as I'll only be tossing away the
    reed switch half.

    I need at least 7, but 14 would be better if I can get them.

    If anyone has any old reed switch pairs where the switch is faulty, or
    just the magnet half, could you please contact me and advise quantity
    and cost, including shipping to NSW, Australia (postcode 2325). Please
    email me at: vk2umj AT yahoo DOT com DOT au. I may not get to drop
    into this group too often so response direct via email would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You 'can' buy just magnets from any alarm supply house.

    1) The reeds I have are about 55mm long X 12mm wide, whatever that
    interprets into in inches! Although I'm not necessarily fussy about
    matching visually 100% perfect.

    2) If someone in Australia knows of a alarm supplier that does sell
    the magnet half alone then please pass on the details as so far I have
    only found them as a switch/magnet pair.

    3) Don't figure it is much use having the window covered by the alarm
    if you have to isolate the window because you want it open a few
    inches! And yes, crime is on the increase - my wife and daughter are
    sometimes left at home alone at night at it is comforting for them to
    be able to perimeter arm the alarm at night. During summer it can get
    very hot at night and it is necessary to lock the windows open
    slightly to let the air flow!!

    Once again, if anyone has any info or items please email me direct as
    I don't get to check these groups regularly (by all means post but an
    email as well would be appreciated!) vk2umj AT yahoo DOT com DOT au

    Thanks
