Questions & Answers

Is this the same as 2 15 amps

Asked by: AlanB
No, it is two 30 amp breakers so that it supports 240 volt. Previous answer is a bit scary...NEVER replace a breaker with a higher amp breaker. True, it "won't pop" as readily but it will allow the wires on the circuit to overheat potentially causing a fire. And, if you don't already know this, you have no business mucking about in your load center.

Does this breaker have the hole to secure the breaker to a retainer kit? I am installing an interlock (BRMIKCSR) that has the included retainer kit (BRHDK125). The kit requires that the breaker have the small hole in front. The picture for this breaker shows the hole, but I just want to make sure. Most BR230 breakers that I've seen do not have the hole. Thanks for any help.
Asked by: Cody
Hello Cody, Thank you for your question. Normally only those breakers used in service entry loadcenters require a hold down kit. However, some local codes do require a hold down kit. To get a 30 amp 2 pole breaker with a hole for this kit requires that a BR230B. Please ask a Home Depot associate to place a special order for the BR230B breaker. The "B" suffix denotes qualified and tapped hole for hold-down kit. Regards, Eaton

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a circuit breaker, nothing more, nothing less. What else can I say? DPST circuit breaker. It is what it is, a safety device that one hopes will function as it was designed to in the event there's an electrical overload. An excellent product if it works, with the potential for a horrible disaster if it doesn't.
