Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Value This surge suppressor is a very good, high spec unit rated at 2800+ joules and 108 kilavolt/amp max surge.using a 50 amp breaker , but it will work with any service panel, and I used it in a Sq D QO 200 amp 40 space panel. It is about the best value for spec out there. The only gripe is that they used 14 gauge stranded aluminum wire for the units pig tale to hook up. This unit is not cheap, they could have spent $ .50 more on copper wire!!!. Stranded aluminum wire needs a sold compression type fitting to attach the wires to the neutral /ground buss bar and the breaker lugs. because they are so much larger than the wire. I improvised and used 14 gauge round butt spice connectors to attach the pig tales properly, because the stranded aluminum wire will mash out under proper tightening. Do not worry about the wire size for the 50 amp breaker , the 14 gauge wire does not carry any load and is internally protected under UL rules. Eaton should have used cooper wire or provided proper connectors to attach... August 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GFCI Adapter, easy to install. Surge protector was relatively easy to install, given that my electric box was totally enclosed. December 10, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eaton Whole House Surge Protector and Flush Mount Kit (purchased elsewhere...HD doesn't carry) Installed by Licensed Electrician...I watched...actually simple to install. Not a DIY project for home owners. Messing in the main electrical panel can KILL you if you don't know what you're doing. Used the FLUSH MOUNT kit and it looks great when finished. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, installed today I completed the install today. Pretty easy, just watched install videos and have electrical knowledge. Please if you are not well educated on electrical work, get an electrician. I installed outside on my external load center where to utility line connects. Be sure and read the directions. They want to you twist the black and red wires once per inch. Overall looks like an excellent product. June 8, 2014
