    JambTac wireless connectors

    I'm needing new JambTac wireless connectors or also known as wireless door jamb connectors
    Keep It Simple has a unit and when I called Painless they no longer sell them
    Is there an alternative without going back to a wire and hiding it in a tube/ plastic conduit or hiding the wire in the hinge?
    Is the unit from Keep It Simple what everybody is using?

    Not sure Ontario55.

    There is a market for someone to custom mill a lower hinge that has the hidden wire slot. Know anyone with CNC capabilities and design software? Imagine new hinges in polished stainless...

    The Jamtac style conductors are not known for reliable use, and at best the pieces in the door and the A pillar must line up with accuracy which is difficult.

    I'm having issues with my connectors and will need to replace them. I may end up gong to the machined door hinge that allows for the wires to lay in a groove.

    Used to be one of the members on the other board, that did that. Not sure if he still does.

    What feature needs to be repaired? I might be able to repair what you have but would need a set for dimensions and an accurate description of the malady.

    Inconsistant and intermittent, connection not being made. I'm replacing power window motors and re-doing the interior so now is the time for a new unit
