The Inertia Switch

Obviously for safety, one can't go past an inertia switch in your EV.
I've been doing a bit of hunting around however as I don't want to pay through the nose for one of these things.
EVAmerica, while generally having good prices, is selling these at $45 USD which isn't toooo bad I guess but seeing I've been awarded Tightwad of the Year 3 year's running, I'm after a bargain.

Does anyone have a cheaper source?
Are these generally called something else on Ebay?

Try searching on "crash sensor." Also you could try and get one from a junkyard... Probably really cheap if you remove it yourself.

If you do buy a used one, make sure and test it before you install it.
