You should be good so long as you do NOT use it for a Cigarette Lighter element. That 'fusable' link is a HEAT FUSE. It's to protect the lighter in case it gets stuck in the 'IN' position and when it gets so hot, it 'opens' as to prevent a fire. That's why you don't find them on Accessory Outlets. Also acessory Outlets don't have the 'clamp' to hold in a lighter element.
They do also have an amperage rating, I might suspect that's why yours opened.
