Hi,

An open frame spst relay with a bit of gum on the contacts might do the trick. Be nice to know how thick the string and how hard the pinch...

Can you use 12 VDC? If so you might try using a steering column/brake interlock solenoid from an auto salvage yard & an eraser or two for the clamp. [Power door locks are actually motor-driven rack & pinion devices & probably use more current.]
