How to connect the ground kit:
One end of the ground kit connects directly to the adapre on the lightning fuse. The other end of solid copper wire contained in the kit connects directly to a ground source; often a copper cold water pipe that is located in the attic (where the fuse normally is located) or at the hot water heater. The grounding kit comes with a bronze grounding clamp that can attach to a .5" to 1" pipe. It also has a place made especially to accomidate the silid copper wire.
Why use a lightning fuse?
A lightning fuse used in conjunction with a most wireless cell phone signal boosters becase is is such cheap insurance against a power surge caused by lightning striking near the outside cellular antenna. This could potentially damage numerous other electronic devices that are being used inside the structure or vehicle as well as the signal booster's in-line amplifier.
While few man-made products are able to withstand all acts of mother nature, we can say that, since 2001 when we opened our doors for business not one single customer who purchased and used a lightning fuse with their signal boosting kits has reported any damage to either the signal boosting kit's amplifier, or to any electronic components located inside the structure or vehicle because of an outside power surge caused by lightning. Numerouse customers have had to order a new filiment for the fuse after an electrila storm but had no electrical products damaged because of the storm, which was proof to them that it did its job.
On the other hand, numerous customers through the years who have not purchased a lightning fuse with their cell phone signal booster kits have reported to us damage to inside electrical components from small amounts to ruining almost every electrical component inside the structure or vehicle. One RV owner lost two televisions, a computer, and other items.
When these customers call back to buy a new signal boosting kit they do buy the lightning fuse this time.
