12V power supply Cover with lighted switch and fuse by ceb Feb 6, 2013

Description

This is remix of the another power cover. That cover is great but I wanted to make a few changes. The original cover was solid with a hole to run the wiring through. I left area under the cage open to run the wires so threading a hole was not necessary. Also this is a big print I modified the solid walls to save plastic and also to make the inner LED light visible through grates. The switch wiring is pretty strait forward and the plug switch combination illuminates. Watch the wiring as the original model I extended this from was wired wrong so the light in the switch did not illuminate.

can you show a pic of your wiring?
The link to the power supply and switch/fuse holder are there. As for the fuse itself I just got it from my local car parts store. I just went for the highest Amps I could find. It is a SFE size 9A from littlefuse
could you post part numbers or links to the switch, jack, and fuse that you used? Thanks!

Also getting a high amp small fuse in my case was a little tough as Home Depot only had them to 6 amps. I found some 12 amp fuses at a car supply store.
