Hello all,I am looking for the paper-thin copper contact part that sits inside of the original door jamb sensor(part number 4826444).  One of mine is, well, shot.  I know that we can get updated sensors and run a ground, but I am trying to stay away from that.Does anyone have one of these in good shape(all four legs off the copper contact) they are willing to sell?--jakeSee More
