    Default Cutler Hammer

    Are these rated for double tapping? It indicates 2 pole breaker, but I was not aware of any wafer breakres rated for double tapping. TGIF

    The way I determine this is I don't see it on the panel specs, is checking if the wire connector has two slots, one on each side of the screw.
    If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me

    I've only read this in someones post somewhere, so cannot verify.
    Double-tappable Cutler breakers are type CH. Those are not. Sorry in advance if this info is wrong.

    The catalog indicates that a single wire is permitted. The information available for the circuit breaker should be used to make the determination as new breaker models may have been marketed since the info in the panel was printed.

    For the most part, none of the 1 inch plug on breakers found in resi use are rated for more than a single wire.
