Broken fuse holder for Trident Propane solenoid switch

Got to the boat tonight and found my fuse holder sticking out and small plastic piece has broken off. Will try to super glue back on tomorrow, but 15 year old plastic probably should replace. Anybody replaced one of these lately and have a source?

That holder is kinda non-standard; I think made by Littlefuse.. Would be good to call Trident to see if they would sell ya one.. otherwise install a regular panel mount fuse holder in the hole where the square one is.

Jerry,
The same thing happened to the fuse holder on our H356 a few years ago while we were out sailing for a week. I broke off the square stick end of a small kitchen match and stuck it in the slot where the plastic tab broke off. Holds the fuse holder in perfectly. I have had to replace the match stick a couple of times in two years, but no need to replace the panel face or the fuse holder.

Thanks for the replys. A new 356 Owner at Lighthouse Landing came by to see me yesterday to ask some questions about the 356. I told him about the fuse holder and that if I found one, I would order him one. Turns out his 2002 had the same problem when he bought it (about 2 weeks ago) and one of my friends who runs maintenance at Green Turtle Bay had ordered one for him last week. We got in touch and now I have 3 of them coming.

The matchstick idea is a good one. Once mine comes in and I am sure they fit, I'll,post where they came from so anyone else can find them if it happens to you. I tried to glue the small piece of plastic back on with superglue and let it cure 24 hours. It did not work and broke almost immediately after I reinserted the fuseholder.

Crazy timing. This JUST happened to us today! The matchstick is working but I'm wondering if Jerry found a better solution? Thanks.

One of my dock mates has ordered several of what is supposed to work, and ordered me three. If he in fact comes through with what we need , I'll let you all know about where they come from. Regardless, I'll let you know the outcome. Due to the eclipse, I 'm not going to the boat this weekend so it will be a couple of weeks before I know what he got works or not.
