I have a 3a fuse that seems to be too small but a 13a fits
Expert:  Pete replied 6 days ago.

Fuses can come in different sizes.

What is the length of the 13A fuse?

What is the length of the 3A fuse that you are using?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
sorry just had to measure -13 a is 2.5 as is the 3a but 13 a is slightly bigger so fits into the clips
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
ok my son has tried it again and pressed it firmly now it fits so looks like we're good and apologies for wasting your time
Expert:  Pete replied 6 days ago.
The SNES plug takes a 25mm fuse, so if it is the correct length it should fit ok when pushed in firmly.
