What does everybody use to attach wiring to a fuse?

I want to get power to an added device and I was wanting to get fused power. They make clips for the bigger fuses, but I haven't seen anything for the smaller fuses on a Mazda.

Thoughts?

May not be the answer your looking for, but when I wired in my radar detector I just wrapped the wire around the fuse prong, and shoved it back in the socket. Its been in there for at least 8 months with no problems.

Just a thought, can you use an in-line fuse? Only reason I ask is because wrapping a wire around a tooth of a fuse and shoving it back in sounds like a hack job. Sure it works, and it might work forever, but there's something to be said for workmanship and pride.

inline fuses will work just as well. They also make fuse holders that accept spade fuses and then have pigtails on each end to wire in

Thats what I use. I have my radar detector and sirius starmate hard wired both that way! Looks a lot cleaner than just wrapping around the fuse, and you get protection as well.
