I don't understand that, you've confused me there because on the stingray, the magnets are in constant contact but it's the switch cover that completes the throw...I think ! On the vela it's still a moving pin making the circuit within the switch assy. Either way i think they have made a good switch . With all the different switches out there with their little quirks or charms, this one does seem like a decent design. Looks like once it's set you can leave it, i like that thinking.
