In line fuse holder for #6 wire

I ran twenty feet of #6 wire from my house battery to my living room tv to power an inverter. I don't feel safe having twenty feet of wire connected directly to my battery without a fuse to protect against a short. Can anyone tell me if someone makes a fuse holder that will crimp to #6 wire?
Thanks

There's so many variants it would take a long time to list them. You also need to match the fuse with your expected load, at a 20 foot run 6ga is good for about 60A

Me personally, I'd go with the 50A circuit breaker in the Amazon link. That will let you run up to a 600W inverter.

Thanks for the replies. That breaker does sound like the best way to go. I'll get it ordered! Thanks again!

I get fuse holders like that at NAPA auto parts. Some they have to order them but get that afternoon or next day.
