scotchlocks are a horror! too many people using the wrong size connectors and cutting through most of the strands!

Yes I think what you are saying equates to what im trying to say. Typing and cigarette packet drawings are not a great means of communication.

 

I will make up a rig next week with photos to hopefully put this one to bed properly. I will make up a simple rig with a battery, fuse tap and 2 circuits comprising of leds or something to make it obvious whats going on.

Take a look at this diagram, the top one shows the fuse tap inserted into the fuse box in the preffered orientation, the bottom one shows what happens if you insert it the wrong way round.

Both circuits still fuse protected but in the case of the wrong orientation if you loose the primary circuit fuse then you loose the second one too.

 

simple and safe.

 

when i get it loaded up

That's my exact point.
If you put a fusetap in the wrong way round then the secondary fuse is bypassed.
You proved my argument for me there.
Ta!

 

If you put it in the wrong way round in the diagram I posted, then the second fuse is NOT bypassed. It should be of lesser rating as its a tap so there for still adequately protected and safe.

 

So no, I have proved your point wrong.
