I used this to tap in fuse block to hard wire my radar detector. Simple and clean. Good product.

I don't understand the reviewers who were confused about fuse size requirements for this product. The description is for a Bussmann BP/HHH ATM Add-A-Fuse.

ATM is the designation for the mini-fuse profile used in almost all late model vehicles. ATC/ATO are regular size fuses used in older vehicles.

These fuse taps will always have the fuse profile,e.g.,(ATM/ATC,etc.)in the product description. Maybe this will help someone in the future. Just do a quick double check before you purchase.

This is a very handy item. I recently wanted to permanently wire in some auto accessories in a Honda Fit. The Bussman Add-A-Fuse allowed me to tap an unused position in my fuse block, without having to add wiring all the way back to the battery. Also, it looks more professional than a generic blade connector stuck into an empty fuse block terminal. An Add-A-Fuse would work well for permanently wiring in an extra power outlet, a GPS, or (in my case) fog lights.

This is a great item for not having to cut and splice into the factory wiring in your vehicle. I used mine to power a Gentex autodimming/compass/temperature mirror. I put mine into the accessory fuse position. That is 10 amps, and the mirror is 5 amps for a total of 15amps running on this add a fuse. You cannot go over 20amps total, or you'll melt this into your fuse panel.

The only problem that I encountered was this item takes the regular sized ATM fuses, the ones with the electrical contact blades like in the picture (extended a few millimeters from the plastic housing). In my Honda and Toyota, the factory uses the ATM fuse that is low profile (the electrical contacts are right up against the plastic housing). So when I popped out the factory fuse and put this add a fuse in its place (it works fine and fit just right) the low profile fuse wouldn't fit into the add a fuse. A trip to the auto parts store solved this, but it was inconvenient when you are on a roll installing things.

This item DOES NOT come with any fuses at all (how could Bussmann know what size fuses you would end up needing for your application?) As long as you plan ahead, this will do the job intended, which is to help you not hack your wiring at all.

The item works as expected...BUT...

Let me start from the beginning, I went to hardwire a radar detector and had originally order the normal size fuse add a circuit. That item arrived with spare spade connectors and and a bunch of spare fuses. This was great until I popped the fuse panel on my truck and realized it took the mini low-profile fuses. Uh oh. So I ordered this item. It arrived, with nothing else. The picture shows fuses, didn't come with any. Problem? Well sort of, because my vehicle takes the low profile mini fuses which do NOT fit in this add a circuit, since the contacts do not extend down. Back to the auto parts store for some some regular mini fuses to replace the one I pulled, plus one for the new circuit. In the end it works as expected, but I wanted to point out to people what they should expect so they aren't running back and forth to the store for different fuses.

Keep in mind this works only on the latest models that use the small blade fuses. Used this to tap-on power for daytime running lights on a 2010 Ford Taurus without any splicing of the original wiring harness. Fantastic product!

This is the best way I've found to tap into an existing automotive fuse-box to add a new circuit, and to do so without hacking at the wiring at the fuse box or elsewhere in the wiring harness.

Make sure you get the right kind/size for your fuse panel - there are ATO and ATM sizes. Mine had the harder to find ATM size, and the local NAPA wanted something like $30 *EACH* for these, and I needed two of them. Score one more for Amazon for getting them dirt cheap in comparison.

Don't overload the fuse contacts. There is a max fuse capacity on these things; look for it on the packaging and abide by it or you will have a fire hazard on your hands. The original wire feeding the original fuse must be able to handle the original load plus the new circuit. If in doubt, use a relay to remove load from the new circuit and tap a high power constant on feed for the high power side of the relay.

I used this to install a radar detector in my Lexus. It worked fine by replacing a fuse and then wiring directly to unit. I used a test light to find a fuse that was controlled by the ignition. Easy to remove and install. It installs and sits higher than the fuses in the car so if you have a cover over your fuse block, it might not fit over it.

This component requires two mini-fuses. It doesn't come with any. I assumed I could grab a couple spares from the fuse box of my 2010 Maxima; turns out the car uses low-profile mini-fuses that don't have protruding contacts, and therefore can't be inserted into this unit.

Fry's Electronics and any automotive parts store will have the right pieces onhand for a couple bucks, I'm just a little miffed I couldn't finish the job all at once. Given that this $7 wire couldn't have cost more than 50 cents to make, it would seem reasonable to expect the requisite fuses to be thrown in.

The purpose of these add-a-fuse devices is to make it easier to power a radar detector, GPS, or similar 12V device. You pop two fuses into this, insert it into an empty fuse slot that's switched with the car (most of them), run the wire to whatever you're powering, and attach the return wire from the device to the ground. In my car, the ground is a metal piece with a small bolt right next to the fuse box in the same compartment.

If your device power wire already has an in-line fuse and you've got some soldering equipment, you could save a few bucks by building a little metal T-bar to push into the fuse receptacle, or tap into an existing line. Really, though, this Bussman is worth the cost just to save the hassle.
