50 Amps is a lot of current, and the last thing you need is a direct short to ground destroying your electrical system, or even your whole vehicle. Enter the Shortstop 50 amp, 12 volt circuit breaker. Shortstop circuit breakers provide protection from short circuits and excessive current draw. They can replace fuses in most applications, and will save you both money and hassle over fuses in the long run. This particular breaker is an auto reset, or type 1 breaker. It requires no external intervention to reset it after it trips. Instead, after a brief period of time, it will simply reset itself. Anytime a circuit breaker trips, it is important to find out the cause of the problem as soon as possible. A short circuit will cause the breaker to trip almost immediately.
