A quick, easy alternative to direct wiring when tapping the “hot side” of the fuse block.The blade type fuse tap is made of sturdy brass and is engineered for quick connect and disconnect of accessories such as C.B. radios, hand-held lights, etc. Installation can be completed in three steps.1. Use a test probe to locate the “hot side” of the circuit in the fuseblock. Then snap the tap over the corresponding “hot side” blade of the fuse. Insert the fuse into the fuseblock.2. Crimp one end of an in-line fuse holder (with the fuse installed) to a fully insulated nylon .250" female quick-connect terminal. Attach the other fuse holder lead to the accessory wire.3. Complete the connection by sliding the female quick-connect terminal onto the protruding tab of the tap.
The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire (i.e. 10 ga. is thicker than 16 ga.)A fusible link is a special section of low tension cable installed by an OEM and designed to open a circuit when subjected to extreme current overload. Its purpose is to minimize wiring system damage when such an overload accidentally occurs in those circuits protected by the fusible link. A short circuit causes the fusible link to act as an element in a “slow-blow” fuse. A fusible link is not intended to be used in place of a fuse but only where a fuse cannot be economically employed. Our fusible line wire meets the requirements of SEJ-156 and the insulation has the characteristics as listed for EAE, SE J-1128Type SXL. The vehicle manufacturer should be consulted about questions on fusible link length and size. General practice has been for a fusible link to be 4 gauges smaller than the circuit wire. Example: if the circuit wire is 12 gauge, use a 16 gauge fusible link. Final determination should be based on O.E.M.application.Note: Extreme care should be taken to always replace a fusible link with the same gauge and length as installed by the manufacturer.
