    Adjustable Screw Plunger Switch, Closed Loop, 3/8" Push Button Press Fit w/ Leads - 10 Pack (White)

    The 3/8" diameter plunger switch series is a unique switch package, designed to incorporate a plunger or push-to-activate function into the shortest, most compact package available. Promoted as a solution to securing the newest generation of vinyl extruded or custom type windows, installation requires that a single hole be drilled, usually into the window frame, eliminating the troublesome and potentially costly hole in the window sash.

    Available as a press fit with an adjustable plunger, this 3/8" push button may be the most versatile reed switch to date.

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

    Installation Instructions:

    Installation requires that a single 3/8” hole be drilled, usually into the window frame, eliminating the troublesome and potentially costly hole in the window sash. Make certain to properly adjust screw plunger prior to complete closing of window. Improper initial adjustment of screw could cause damage to the switch, resulting in a malfunction.

    Measure gap from the mounting surface. Press plunger down on the switch and adjust screw so distance between top of screw and the mounting surface is 1/32” (.0312) less than gap. If gap is 3/16” or less, remove adjusting screw. Determine maximum plunger extension PRIOR to closing window or protected opening. Improper initial adjustment of screw could cause damage to the switch.

    Press Fit Plunger Switch Installation

    Caution: For best performance, it is recommended that the installer slightly over drill the hole for the switch and make certain hole is free of debris. If the hole is too tight, it can interfere with operation of the switch. Do NOT paint the switch or spray or apply any lubricating material to this switch. Lubricants tend to collect dust, sand and other small items of debris. Any lubricant applied to the plunger switch will obstruct or at least hamper the performance. This switch is not recommended for the bottom track of windows or sliding doors.
