Old type fuse holders

I am in need of some of the old style fuse holders used in older fuse panels in boats. The push in type with a circular spring tension clip in the base, not the current prong type. I have scoured auto stores and Marine shops, unable to find any. Maybe somebody here has a source.

Re: Old type fuse holders

Any electronics supply will have them, haven't been in a radio shack in years but they probably have them. For sure Unicorn Electronics in Binghamton has them. They really aren't old, still the most common type of fuse in electronic products. Just not used as much in the auto industry.

Just do a search on AGC fuse block or holder, lots to choose from.

Re: Old type fuse holders

Neither one have them. Its not the fuse block, its the individual fuse holder. The old kind had a plastic retention tab on the side, they usually break when you change the fuse. I broke two the other day working on a 1971 boat, I went to all sources in my area, all they have is the new prong type, which is similiar, but won't work in the old fuse panel.

If so then search "agc panel mount fuse holder"

Re: Old type fuse holders

Thats the new type, old type was push in, with a plastic tab that locked the fuse and holder in the panel. No part of the old type was threaded. When you install one in the panel it snaps in like you are testing a modern GFCI. Once that retention tab breaks, its useless, the fuse won't stay in the panel.
