The Square D by Schneider Electric QO Qwik-Gard 20 Amp One-Pole GFCI Circuit Breaker is intended for protection of entire branch circuits where damp-location shock hazards may exist, providing overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system. The ANSI-certified and UL-listed unit is rated for 120 VAC and 10,000 AIR. All QO circuit breakers are equipped with the exclusive Visi-Trip indicator. When a QO Visi-Trip circuit breaker trips, the handle snaps to a midpoint position between in OFF and in ON and a highly visible, red indicator easily identifies the tripped breaker. This enables you to easily distinguish which breaker has tripped in a load center that may contain up to 42 different circuit breakers. QO circuit breakers have features no other manufacturer can offer. They come in many different sizes and can meet the needs of virtually every function in your home or business. These types of quality, industry exclusive products keep the Square D brand ahead of the competition and are builders' and electrical contractors' first choice in electrical protection. This QO Qwik-Gard breaker is compatible with Square D's QO breaker box and CSEDs with 1 space available.

Works well to power my parked Travel Trailer. I also added the 30 Amp Temporary RV Power Outlet (Internet #202307113 Model #U013P Store SKU #427817). Check your camper as some require 50 AMP.

NO! Pigtail is the only connection from circuit neutral back to panel neutral on this circuit breaker.

what is the different between a 20 amp square d breaker with two screws and one with a single screw

Asked by Freddie July 27, 2020
5
Answers

Assuming you're asking about the difference between this one and P/N QOB120CP, it appears that this one clips into place and the other one is screwed down to the retaining rail. If you look at the bottom view in the pictures for both parts you should see the difference. As others have said, if the 2 screws are both for attaching wires then it's most likely a 2 pole breaker, but you picked this and so I'm guessing that wasn't your question. Hopefully this answers it, but the pictures for the breakers seem good enough you can probably tell which one you need by comparing the one you have to the pictures.

I thought the new QO panels didn't need the pigtail? since they have "plug-on neutral".

Asked by JBJB July 16, 2020
2
Answers

You can buy them either way. The panel has to be called plug on neutral. If you buy pigtail you can use it in any QO panel except bolt on but it makes a mess if you have many of them. If you buy without pigtail then it will only fit panels with plug on neutral application.

Square D QO series are the only breakers that are rated for DC usage, as stated on their web site. I used 4 to connect 16 100 watt solar panels to my charge controller. Another perfect combination of items purchased through Homedepot.com!

I used this for a new outlet I installed in my garage. The outlet was a spare left over from a previous project so it wasn't a GFCI outlet. The circuit breaker worked great once I found the right model that would fit in the breaker panel. Only complaint I have is the metal clips on the breaker that connect to the hot and neutral bus bars. I had to use a screw driver to open up the neutral clips to get them to fit in the panel. The clip for the hot wire kept popping out of the breaker and I had to pop it back into place multiple times to get the breaker to attach to the panel. Once this was done the breaker worked fine and tripped when I tested the outlet with an outlet tester.

Not suitable for new home construction. Must have AFCI Breakers. Please note this review is based strictly on my individual experience with the breaker. Many will say the fault is mine, and that is ok. It is. However my hope with this review is to save others my distress by impressing upon Home Depot the fact that this breaker is NOT for new residential buildings and this fact should be noted for all 15 and 20 amp breakers that are not AFCI breakers now that the NEC by code has replaced almost all of these old standard $8-11 breakers with $36-50 AFCI breakers. The old breakers can still be used for New Business building construction but not new home except for extremely limited use. Currently they are still allowed for old home repairs too. Next years' NEC code updates, could phase them into all internal residential circuits. Currently AFCI breakers are not required for residential bathroom, fridge, water heater, dryer, or stove circuits (currently in 2019). A/C wiring is exempt as well. Backround; I am building a retirement home and was attempting to do everything I could to minimize outside contractor costs. Having done wiring years ago, I knew I could do the house wiring with a little NEC reading (I did not do enough obviously, DOH!). I ordered the old style breakers. Now I will return them and upgrade to AFCIs which impacts my house budget by $700-800. Returns happen all the time in construction but this might have been alleviated if Home Depot noted these breakers are not suitable for new home construction, except in limited use. I attached a picture so the physical differences can be noted. Luckily the 200 Amp Square D box I already wired into the house is AFCI ready. (TYG) Cheers.

I consider myself a GROUNDED individual and can find no FAULT with this product. Really the only possible deal BREAKER would be the price. I QWIKly looked elsewhere but found no better price so I ended up buying it. I’d be more AMPed up about this purchase if the cost was a bit less. I’m sure if we took a POLE. Everyone would agree. Overall, I suppose it’s a SQUARE Deal. Worked fine for the hot tub.
