Generator Interlock Kit for GE Load Center


I see you are right now heading down the same path with exactly the same main panel I have. What interlock ended up working for you? Eagerly awaiting your reply.

Jetmakr, you work at Pratt?

Generator Interlock Kit for GE Load Center


Hi Taylor,

I used the THQLLX1 interlock and it worked out fine. The determining factor is if your main breaker shuts off moving horizontally the THQLLX1 is the one. If the main breaker moves vertically and the generator breaker moves horizontally the THQLLX4 is the one you need. Worked great and is sooooooooooooooooooo much cheaper than a transfer switch.

Pratt.yep. retired after 42 yrs..............

Generator Interlock Kit for GE Load Center


, I think your THQLLX4 solution only works with GE TSM415 or TSM420 main panels though I'm not completely sure. Unless someone tells me these interlock kits are rather universal I don't think it'll work for my and Scott's TM3220CCU or TLM3220CCU main panel.

Congrats on making it 42 years with the eagle!

I've been down the same path this thread is about. The THQLLX4 is for meter main panels. The main is vertical throw and the sub-breaker beneath is vertical throw. GE does not have an interlock kit for MB Goldmark panels that are vertical main throw with branch circuit horizontal throw as the original poster shows in his picture. You'll have to go with the product by Interlockkit.

I have the exact same panel and I'm also planning on buying the interlock kit.

A couple of year ago I got an interlock kit for a Square D QO breaker box for practically nothing on clearance at Lowes. I still have it. I wish I knew someone that would trade a GE interlock kit for the QO kit I have.

I still haven't done this yet. Storm took down a fence so even with insurance, I'll be out of pocket quite a few $$$ to fix that. So genset, etc. may have to wait until Spring. You know... after the winter when I would most like to have it handy. : )
