Questions & Answers

What is the tab for

Explain what the tab is for
Asked by: Denny
The tab is to prevent tandem breakers from being installed where they are not designed to go. Some panels don't want you to use tandem breakers or only allow them in specific spots. Tandem breakers without the tab (non-CTL) are for panels before the 1960's requirement started and are normally more expensive. So this BD1520 is for modern panels and the equivalent BR1520 is for really old panels. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circuit_total_limitation for history

15/20 Amp Single-Pole Type BD Tandem BR Circuit Breaker is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from replacement breaker works as it should.... replacement breaker works as it should.
Date published: 2017-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product as as advertised and met the need The dual current piggy back breaker is very handy in the situation that I faced. I needed to add a 20 amp breaker on the second pole of the panel for a split kitchen circuit with one nuteral (3c #12 w/ground), and I had no space. Replaced a single 15 amp breaker with this one. Problem solved. Of course, you can't really rate the quality of a circuit breaker until it works or fails, but from a installation/problem solving perspective, this breaker is great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk A piece of junk. I bought it for the 15 amp cicuit breaker. It worked. The 20 amp breaker will not stay set to on.
Date published: 2011-05-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved a space Discovered a space in the breaker box used by a single 20 amp. breaker and was in need of adding a single outlet 15 amp. circuit in order to lighten load on other outlet circuits. This fit the bill perfectly by replacing the single 20 with the dual 15/20. Since load would be for a heater as opposed to an air conditioner unit, load would never be used at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breaker We are remodeling and addition by the previous owner and needed to add a few circuits. Without replacing the entire panel we went from 8 circuits to 12. We have had no problems. This all done under the supervision of my electrician neighbor. I highly recommend.
