Who sells maxi-fuse holders that accept ring terminals?

Hi,
I got a few maxi-fuse holders from Waytek Wire, but they come with 6 gauge wires as connections, and the circuits I'll be using those on have smaller wires - some 10 gauge, some 12 gauge. I fear that if I use them, the harness will become the fuse (since it's smaller than the part that's connected to the maxi-fuse).
Painless Performance sells a maxi-fuse kit that accepts ring terminals (part #80101), but at aroudn $36, I think that's pretty expensive for what it is.

I saw car audio type holders, but they're designed for even bigger wires.
Anyone know where to get something similar to the painless maxi-fuse holder, but at a non-ripoff price? I'm sure they don't make them themselves...
Thanks,
Ran

You could try Enos, www.enoscustom.com. Those guys are pretty reasonable.



Hope this helps, mikey

Check your local Napa...in the Balkamp color book, there are many different styles of fuseholders....get the guy behind the counter to let you look through the catalog. Amazing what ya can find in there

Doc here,

Go to the Electrical Department of Home Depot..

Look or ask for screw on Brass compression Connectors for Home circuit busses. Those will accept up to about a # 4 wire..and start out about $3.00 a pop..

Simple hook up, just strip the wire back, feed the end into the compression end, tighten the flush screw or hex bolt until very tight in a vise, and bolt the terminal onto the buss..you might even get the PG&E or cable guy to toss a few your way free , they use them for grounding..



Lot cheaper than $36...and local.

Doc

Thanks for all the replies guys,
I was pointed to Delcity by someome on Moparts.com:

http://www.delcity.net/delcity/servl...=790097&page=1
That's what I was looking for.
www.terminalsupplyco.com also sells the same thing, but they charge more for the cover.
So, this is more or less what Painless sells, but for about $25 less.
I went ahead and ordered for Delcity.
Doc, if I understand correctly, your tip was on how to convert the ones I already have to accept ring terminals, right?

Thanks,
Ran

Doc,
If you don't mind answering, was my concern based on any truth, or am I just a little paranoid - connecting a maxi-fuse that has 6" of 6 gauge wire sticking out from both sides to a circuit that has 12 gauge wire would put the 12 gauge wire at risk of burning becasue it might act as a fuse (instead of the real fuse). I think this is probably dependant on the maxi-fuse capacity.
Anyway, even if it doesn't make sense to worry about it, it still looked wrong to me.

What do you think?
Thanks,
Ran
