Answers

Yes, this breaker can be used in a General Switch panelboard. Inside the door of your panel there will be a label and on that label will be the list of circuit breakers approved for use in the panel. On that list you will find Bryant BR breakers. The Eaton/Cutler-Hammer BR breaker replaces the Bryant breaker.

IS THIS A MAIN BREAKER?

Asked by Nik April 22, 2019

Answers

It can if the panel is designed to use a branch circuit breaker. It would require it to be secured to the panel by a screw through the hole visible in the lower middle of the breaker especially if the breaker is installed with the feeders backfeeding the breaker. Note: only as approved by the panel manufacturer.

Will this replace Zinsco breakers?

Asked by RadioDoug February 6, 2018
5
Answers

No, this breaker will not fit in a Zinsco or Zinsco style Sylvania panel. For a replacement breaker do a search for Connecticut Electric breakers, they make a Zinsco replacement although they are very expensive. The best option, however, would be to replace the panel. Zinsco panels are known fire hazards.
