I have a component on a board. It has a clear diode like jacket with a switch in side. This component is closed via a magnet. I need to replace one as it seem to no longer close like the others. I can not for the life of me find one. Can any one help me locate this component?

That's what I would have called them, but Digikey lists them under magnetic reed switches. They have a bunch, or you can scrounge one from a burglar alarm door sensor.

They have a box of them at Skycraft. They do mail order.
