Answer: 
It does fit a Cutler Hammer type BR 150amp load center. The main breaker should look like the one in the attached picture (I just installed this kit and this is my load center before install). It would still work if the load center were inverted, so long as the relationship between the main and the generator breaker are the same (you would just mount the kit upside down).

Answer: 
No. The BRMIKCSR will only work with current BR style loadcenters due to the breakers configuration. Eaton does not offer an interlock kit for Challenger loadcenters. The only option would be to use a double through safety switch like DT224URK-NPS

Generator Interlock Kit for BR Load Centers with CSR/BWH Main is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Affordable, and Easy This kit was a perfect fit for my 15 year old Cutler-Hammer 150amp load center and at a very reasonable price compared to others. I did not have pre-marked holes, but I followed the provided instructions for drilling them out and everything lined up.It feels solid and comes with all of the extra pieces needed to meet code (stickers and hold down screw). One thing to note: If you intend to use this with a 30 amp breaker you will have difficulty finding one with the hold down screw hole. Eaton does make one, but it is not carried in store. It is part# BR230B, not BR230). Using a higher amp breaker as template - I was able carefully drill the hole in my regular BR 30amp breaker, but I wouldn't recommend that for everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great in my panel once installed correctly. I followed MFR instructions to a T and mount... Works great in my panel once installed correctly. I followed MFR instructions to a T and mounted using four through-the-bezel holes since my panel was not pre-dimpled to drill and screw through the outside four mounting holes. using the through-the-bezel holes caused the face to be pushed up far enough sitting on the front of the main breaker that that plate did not bar the interlocked breaker. I ended up marking and drilling my panel to use the four outside mounts and now the plate sits correctly and functions as it should. very sturdy and secure piece of material.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Device, better instructions The lockout is exactly what I needed, it fits the breaker panel I have for my install needs. I deducted one star because the instructions are unclear on how to install one set of the 4 screws, they should provide a paper template for both drill sets. I deducted another star because the type of breaker needed to install the kit and long screw is not sold as part of the package. I was unable to find that breaker in stock and did not feel comfortable modifying a 50 amp breaker. I called all of the local electrical supply shops and noone had it in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great transfer switch alternative! Not sure why some people have said this is hard to install on your cover because it's not! Why pay $300-$400 for a transfer switch when you can have this and have more circuits? Others have said this interlock is expensive for just a piece of metal, but I've seen others for twice as much that aren't even UL listed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect order The generator interlock kit arrived in two days, had everything in the kit that was advertised, and best of all it was easy to install and my generator was up in running in less than thirty minutes. No problems whatsoever! Thank you Home Depot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product for the BR series panels We are a Electrical Contractor and have a hard time finding this interlock kit at our supply houses, the great thing about this product is there is no doubt on the UL listing with other after market kits out there this is always a concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Eaton/Cutler Hammer 200 Amp load center with top center main breaker I initially hesitated at the price for a simple metal plate, but grew frustrated shopping for a transfer switch so I gave in and bought this. I'm glad I did. You get a quality product, and the flexibility to access your entire panel and choose the circuits you want to power at any given time (subject to your generator's capacity). The 2 assembled plates are made of a heavy gauge steel, powdercoated, and do slide very smoothly. The kit includes the breaker holddown plastic block and long screw, which are available as a separate kit that you do not need to buy (BRHDK125). The dedicated holddown device for the backfed circuit breaker is required by code. The kit also includes stickers that contain the written warning notices required by code for the installed backfeed system (interlock plate, backfeeding breaker, backup generator).
