How can I raise a MICRA-G sensor ?

Greetings , 


I am trying to install a MICRA-G sensor to a sliding door. 

After making the hole, and trying to put the magnet in place, I realized that there is a space of at least 1 inch between the sensor and the magnet when the door is close (see attached image), which will not work. I really love the non-intrusive look of the micra-g and would like to keep it. I just need to find a way to raise the magnet.


Thanks !



  • Hi, 

    I do not see any way to modify the installation of the Micra-g sensor to work with the sliding door. I know you would like to keep all of the sensors hidden but I do not see a way to get around it on the sliding door. The best bet is to get our surface mount contact for your sliding door. I will attach a link to it below. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

  • Actually, ION has a Super Strengh Magnet that can cover a gap up to 2". 

    You can find it online under the reference ION-WG-125.

    I am hoping Brinks will carry it soon.
