Adding A Fused Power Source???

I posted on the mobile electronics forum, but may have better luck here. Has anyone ever ran power to an unused fuse location in our fuse block and used the other end to power an "option" or mod? I am looking to add a 'fused' power source for a heated steering wheel and thought this may be the "ultra safe" way to go. Ideas, thoughts, help...

Wow, nobody responded......

I am interested in this as well. Basically, I need to know if I can find the metal connectors to go in an unused slot in the fuse block.

Anyone know where I can find those connectors? Would the dealership have them?
