The fused connector adapter disclosed herein is shown in the drawing. The fuse can be placed in-line on any line required and on any size (position) male/female adapter. It is used in-line with cable assemblies. The adapter is reversible. By internally fusing the adapter, it prevents destruction of cable assemblies or other components that the cable is attached to. It also provides protection to personnel related to possible fire or toxic flames.
