    SA200 black face reed switch question.

    2 damn reed switches now, and they're so brittle when they go into the porcelain piece on the negative lead they break. $20 after shipping each time. Do they absolutely need to be in that porcelain between the negative lead or not? It seems like a good way for it to break in something that rattles for hours on end.

    And help would be great thanks.

    Yesterday, I got a reed switch from BW Parts. It comes inside a plastic tube, that does not fit into the copper strap loops as it should. Thinking about wrapping in electrical tape to cushion the glass body from vibration of the copper strap.

    Porcelain or hard fiber? I've had to run a drill bit thru them to size it for the glass tube to fit. Make sure the copper strap coils aren't causing the tube to form a curve that restricts the reed switch from fitting.
