Instead, I used the cigarette lighter/accessory fuze. You could also try the radio fuze or interior lights fuze. A radar detector doesn't pull much power so it shouldn't be an issue for any of the above fuzes.
As for wrapping a wire around the fuze and sticking the fuze back in, I didn't do that either. Auto Zone had "fuze taps" that allowed me to solder a wire to a bit of bent metal that went over the fuze. Much cleaner install (and easier to re-insert the fuze too).
