Default IEC jack w/fuse -need help wiring

I'm not sure how to wire this mount up and was hoping someone could tell me or better yet, show me. It is to be used as the source for an amp 6 build . there are 4 poles on the back and I am,...well, confused.

Use your ohmmeter, but it looks like ground goes straight through on the bottom. The hot goes up to the fuse, and has a small terminal, probably so one can add a light for blown fuse indication. Normally you wouldn't connect anything here. The other side of the fuse is, well, fused hot. The remaining straight through terminal is the neutral. This is a US 120VAC arrangment- it wouldn't be suitable for EU 220VAC, as I think you need dual fuses.

Thanks , the small terminal is what threw me, I didn't think of an indicator light.
