Does anyone know what an Open End ANL Fuseholder is and mostly how it differs from a standard fuse holder?

http://autosoundgear.com/tek9.asp?pg=products&specific=joennpn0

This is what I'm looking at purchasing, plus two of the PROBATT wire terminals putting the total at just over $20... and I like the way it looks much more than the more expensive solutions like ....

Is the difference that the open-ended isn't water resistant? Does that mean I wouldn't be able to use it under the hood? Trying to pick up all of my new wiring & accessories today so any help would be appreciated... picking up all Stinger HPM & Helix RCAs I think (and yes its solely based on the look of the platinum over the look of the gold... I hate gold...)

I guess if I need the waterproof ones I'll switch that over to Knu Konceptz and get http://www.knukonceptz.com/detail.asp?product_id=FH20 instead... a whole lot cheaper for the same thing.

Unless I'm mistaken, the ANL is used only because it allows for larger rated fuses. Open ended probably means that the wiring goes into the case and then connects to the terminals, leaving as the name suggests, a large hole. The water resistant type is probably a fuse totally encased in plastic with the terminals brought through the case.

As for not being able to use it under the hood... how much water do you really get in there? Personally, I'd go with the stinger open ended fuse holder, and if I was worried about water, I'd either find a gasket of some kind or wrap the wire in electrical tape to make it a bit thicker then force it throught.

I'd say go with the ANL holder. ts what I use and it works perfectly. The open end fuses fail fairly easy and can be a pain to get out. Also make sure you put a very high amperage fuse in beacause you don't want the amps to blow. The only reason for the fuse under the hood is to protect your wires from burning up if they ground out. The amps have there own protection. Good luck.
