    Default Double Taps

    How can you tell which Square D breakers are designed for two wires at screw down?

    If you got really, really good eyes, you might be able to read it on the breaker, or you can look at the terminal clamp.

    Sq D 15-30 amp breakers are listed for one or two conductors. Larger sizes are for one conductor only.

    But that's only for the same gauge wire on each breaker?
