Multimeter Fuse Hack

     Yesterday, while working on my Linksys LED Matrix, I blew the 500mA fuse protecting my cheap Cen-Tech multimeter. Unfortunately, I did not have another 5x20mm fuse in that rating, but I did have a few 6x30mm 500mA 250V fuses. Luckily, I had just bought some inline 6x30mm fuse holders for another project I'm working on and hacked my multimeter into a working state in no time.
Just enough room behind the LCD to fit the fuse holder
