Greetings everyone,
I have been trying to find fuses for the top part of the tap-a-fuse (away from the prongs). I have bought not one but two packs of 5A fuses and they both do not fit...

admittedly it was my fault for not even noticing that in the picture of the second one, the legs were so tiny that theres no way they could fit in the sockets.

and then here is the one that came with the hardwiring kit

My question is, is it really a bad idea to put the 15A ones that came with the kit on the top part of the tap a fuse (away from the prongs)? with my accessory 5A below and a 20A for the constant tap-a-fuse in the slots closer to the prongs?

I dont know how fuses or amps work so I'm confused.

If the 15A blue ones arent a good idea then which ones on amazon should I buy that will fit in the tap-a-fuse?

Thank you

Assuming the fuse tap fits correctly in your cars fuse box and the fuses in the car match the 15A that was supplied with the tap then you need a mini fuse something like this appears to be correct Mini 5a fuse if you check the measurements of the fuse you can compare them if required.
