16 Gauge Inline Fuse Holder with Protective Cover
Fuses protect your power distribution system — you need them to prevent damage to your equipment from current overload. The job of a fuse is to protect any equipment's vital wiring. Vehicle wiring can be pretty deeply entrenched and integrated into an electrical system making it extremely difficult to locate and replace. When a current large enough to fry a wire or damage a vital component is drawn through some electrical system in a vehicle, the vehicle's fuses will burn out first and prevent that current from doing any major damage.
In order to apply fuses in a vehicle, it must have an automotive fuse holder. Inline Fuse holders with protective covers are mechanisms that are used to carry and shelter fuses. They are generally manufactured in two different styles: either open or completely covered. Fuse holders such as fuse clips, socket, blocks and plug-on type fuse holders are classified under the open fuse holder style. The covered fuse holder comprises of fuse carrier fitted onto the holder so that it completely covers and provides protection to the fuse inside.
When buying a fuse holder for your vehicle, it should meet the required specifications of the fuses being used. Such specifications include the operating current, operating voltage stated by the manufacturer as well as the highest power dissipation capacity, otherwise known as the Rated Power Acceptance, of the fuse.
