The Scotchlok® 972 series of single fuse holders are self-striping and feature IDC (insulation-displacement connection) termination. Manufactured from high-quality, high-temperature polypropylene the 3M range of ATO fuse holders are robust and reliable. With their simple design, the only tooling required for termination is a standard slip joint plier.

3) Fold that half of the fuse body over the wire until the element contacts the wire
4) Crimp that half of the connector closed with the slip joint pliers
5) Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 with the other wire

Once these steps have been completed an appropriately sized ATO fuse is inserted into the holder. In-line fuse holders enable easy access for the inspection of or replacement of damaged or blown fuses. The 3M Scotchlok® 972 fuses holders are suitable for maintenance repair and new designs.
