The FCB-205-A PC automotive blade fuse clip features contacts made of 0.016 nickel-plated brass, and the insulator is made of nylon 6/6 black, UL-rated 94 V-O. The fuse clip is for a 0.205 X 0.025 standard blade fuse, and is compatible with Littelfuse ATO 257 Series and Bussmann ATC fuses. The FCB-205-A maintains position during wave soldering, prevents solder wicking, and withstands shock and vibration. The clip will hold the blade fuse securely after many applications and is recommended from 15 to 20A.
