How many do you want?


I was curious, never having seen any, if indicator fuse holders were
available So I did a bit of searching on the local electronics suppliers
(RS, Farnell and Rapid Electronics) websites for individual LED indicator
equipped 5 x 20mm fuse holders and didn't find any. I looked for that
type because those would be direct replacements for the in-flight
accessible fuse holders in my glider.

I did see indicator fuse blocks and individual indicator holders for auto-
type fuses and rather more with neon indicators, but none of the latter
worked at 12v - they're all for 90-240v circuits.

I'm somewhat surprised that LED indicator holders for 5x20mm fuses aren't
available - it wouldn't be hard to fit an LED in the cap of these
