Questions & Answers


will this or other kit fit in Model # SO2040VP to retain 100amp breaker

Asked by Francisco July 13, 2019

Hello, The correct kit to use for the SO2040VP would be catalog number RCGK2. Regards, Customer Care Center

Would this work on panel HOM1224L125pgcvp

Asked by Jose April 24, 2019

This device isn't dependent on the panel type. It depends on the breakers installed within the panel. It is designed for a BR2 or 3-pole main. These come with a predrilled hole that allows the clamp to be applied over the breaker paddle. It doesn't secure the breaker to the panel, it prevents the breaker paddle from being thrown into the off position. In panels that don't have a breaker position between the line side and the panel bus, the breaker acting as the main (installed in a slot) is locked off so for the unknowing, they don't think it's a regular circuit and trip it. For the knowing, it tells them this is the acting main for that panel. For panels with a 3-pole main, it says when installed, never turn the main off ( a qualified electrician should determine when it is appropriate to lock-off a main breaker in this instance. ) A retaining kit is NOT used in a main panel (connection to service) as this creates a hazardous condition if the breaker can't trip. They are used in sub-panels that are protected up the line at the service entrance main by an un-retained breaker.

will this retaining kit wok in a HOM816L125 load center

Asked by BOB April 28, 2016

Thank you for your inquiry. For Series S01 and S02 HOM816L125 load centers, retaining kit HOM4RK2LA secures one circuit breaker to right side of interior when used as a back-fed main.

Is this the correct retainer for a backfed (solar) breaker in an SC2040M200C CESD panel?

Asked by BMD April 16, 2016

Thank you for inquiry. There is no retaining kit for this device.

Is this the correct retainer for 2 pole 80 breakers. I have installed solar and I need to retain 2 breakers 1 in HOMC21UC and another in HOMC20U100C

Asked by solarbarn November 11, 2015

HOMC21UC and HOMC20U100C are cover numbers. For proper selection of generator interlock, if available, please confirm the catalog number and the series number of the load center itself. Please call our Technical Support line for assistance at 1-888-778-2733, option 1.

Will this retaining kit work for a back-fed circuit on a HOM3060M200PC panel?

Asked by SolarGuy November 2, 2015

HOMCGK2 is the correct generator interlock kit for use with HOM3060M200PC.

Can a HOM816L125 be expanded beyond 8 spaces?

Asked by Clodee August 23, 2015

No. The limitation is the capacity of the panel bus. Manufacturers use the same cabinet for a variety of panels and rate them based on the load the installed bus can handle. The appearance of extra space doesn't mean the bus can handle the additional load (otherwise, it would be a different bus and a different panel.) This panel is rated at 125 amps of capacity, which means that at most, you may have 8, 15-amp breakers. Note that 8, 20-amp breakers (or any combination more than 125 amps) exceeds the capacity of the bus and would be very dangerous.

will this retaining kit work on a homeline/squareD model# HOM816L125PC panel?

Asked by dz21 May 23, 2015

Use HOM4RK2LA retaining kit when backfeeding a branch-mounted HOM breaker as the main. HOM816L125PC may also be converted to main breaker style with the addition of a QOM1 main breaker kit.
