I need a 5th connection on the Victron lynx distributor

There are only 4 dc circuit connections on the lynx distributor. I need a 5th connection. How to I add the 5th? Can i connect to the 5th set of bolt connectors at the end of the lynx and use an external fuse or breaker? Or do I double up on one of the 4 connections?

What about adding it in the middle? Of course only, if your negative side is grounded somewhere else. On the positive busbar you'd need to drill a hole (no exactly aligned to the negative one, as the existing screw is in the way.

That should work. It would not look as pretty as a second Lynx, but much cheaper.

Avoid this.

Probably better to add a second distributor
