Please delete if in wrong section.
This past year i was frustrated with my fuse box and rewiring my dash. I kept blowing fuses.
My issue was breaking the glass fuses when pulling out to check them or installing new. Likewise, can't these companies stamp the amps larger so people can read what size they are. Not sure if i am the only person.
I wanted to convert these glass fuses to newer tab series so that i can read and install them easier. I found there was nothing out there.
I ended up making my own. Now my buddies are wanting them for their cars. Not sure if i have something here.
I sold them for $5
Is this too much or not enough?
Open to thoughts and feedback.

You have made exactly two posts since you joined this place. Both on the exact same thing.

If you are breaking glass fuses this isn't the solution. The proper fuse puller is.

I believe they have been already made. Better check for patent infringements. Nice concept but I would not spend 50 bucks to convert a working panel of glass fuses.

Saw these before and commented that I had never had a fuse blow in 20yrs.
And just today I had 1 blow while working on my transmission.

Still don't see spending $100 to replace readily available glass fuses

in addition, if your blowing fuses, your problem is elsewhere. Possibly the tubular contacts themselves. You are also introducing FOUR additional connections to each circuit which electronics 101A teaches one to avoid when possible beer
