Quoted from dothedoo:

The 5050 coil is only a weaker hold, same flip power. You would want something like a 26-600. You could also just gap the EOS switch wider so the power stroke is shorter.

I agree just gap it wider that's all you need to do (and get rid of the resistor, you don't need it)

You can make the gap ridiculously huge, too, as long as it holds at the end and doesn't chatter.
