They are basically the same thing, but I think technically you have to use Murray.

I've got a Siemens breaker in my crouse-hinds panel.

The Cutler Hammer CL line of breakers are classified replacements for the Crouse-Hinds MP line.
You probably need to pick one up at an electric supply house. I haven't seen them in the big box stores.

No, i did not have an inspection. My crouse-hinds are MP. The Siemens I have in there Is a QP. At the time I thought that was a proper replacement.

I haven't seen Murray breakers in the local box store, but I know those are a listed replacement (they look just like the Siemens)..., in addition to the ones Oso mentioned.

So if mine already has a few seimans in there will they have to be changed out ,to Murray or cutler hammer type, before inspected?

not sure this would justify it but it says much.
And may be help for many others replacing old parts.
And yes it doe show mine as interchangeable also..
