Tapping your Fuse Box? Read This First
If you are thinking about adding an electrical component into your vehicle, you better be thinking about using the right equipment. Shoving a wire between a fuse and its receptacle, in the fuse box is not the right way to do it.
If you want a clean install, that you know will be trouble free, you want to use the Bussmann ‘Add A Fuse’. It’s a simple item that replaces an existing fuse in your fuse box.
For example, if you are installing a 10amp accessory, you want to tap into an existing 10amp circuit in the fuse box. Simply remove the existing fuse, install this ‘add a fuse’ and insert two 10 amp fuses into the new ‘add a fuse’ item.
Why are there 2 fuse slots?
1 fuse will protect the preexisting circuit
1 fuse will protect the new item you are installing.
I found you guys a good deal on this item on amazon.
