'89 BB door jam switches

What are the switches located at the rear of the door jams for? Any idea where they can be purchased? The one on my driver's door lost the plunger cover and is out and bent over.

Officially, it's called the safety restraint unlock switch or something to that effect.

Basically, during any sudden forward braking, our seatbelts sense the emergency and LOCK our seat belts from feeding out or retracting via a mechanical inertia switch. Once the door is opened, said switch releases the seat belt lock and allows it to be automatically retracted.

I looked high and low for an official part name and number to no avail.
