For my multimeter I need to replace a fuse. It is 6.3mm in diameter, 25mm long, rated 500mA/250V AC and 1500A interrupt rating.
I have a couple of such fuses, but they are 5mm in diameter, and looking online here in Germany I can't seem to find 6.3x25mm ones. So I was wondering in general (but of course mostly specific to my multimeter):
Are there any downsides in bending the fuse holders just a bit (1.3mm)? Assume that the fuse can not easily fall of, at most lose contact. I am mostly interested in safety issues here, I can live with the fuse needed to be reset from time to time.
