    You need a mini piggyback fuseholder mate with 2 fuses. The ones I've used come with a short lead and an inline crimp connector already fitted.

    I don't think the fuse in the picture is actually supplied so I bought a pack of 10 fuses from the same supplier at the same time.

    Thanks mate ... Why do you need to add two fuses? Should it only be one for one supply feed? Or and what amp fuse do i need

    I think you need 2 fuses due to the design mate, one fuse is to take the place of the one that would be in the socket if you were using it, and the other is to allow power to the piggy back flying lead.

    If all you are using the fuse for is LED strip lights, then you can put a low current one in, somthing like 2A would be plenty large enough fella.

    I just pushed a small spade connector into the live side of the fuse carrier then an inline fuse after that.
