Installing ground screw on Homelite fuse panel
I was wondering does anyone know exactly where I should mount the ground screw on a 100 amp Homelite fuse panel? Usually there is a place on the ground terminal where this screw goes but on this panel there isn't one. Should I just screw it on the neutral or ground terminal block itself where the neutral and ground wires go?

We would need to see a picture and clarification on if you are mounting a ground bar or a bond screw/jumper.

Homelite or Homeline??? Usually a Homeline bonding screw goes in the middle of the buss connecting bar. Have you read the instructions?

We don't know if it is a sub or main panel...makes a BIG difference,

Ground screw? Homelite? Fuse panel? Ground terminal? Too much incorrect terminology to give me any confidence you know what you're doing. Would help to know why you're asking about this.

If it's the green BONDING SCREW you're talking about, the picture posted above is right on - looks just like my Homeline panel. But that screw is used only in the main panel, not any subpanel. If you're referring to the GROUND BAR, Homeline panels (at least all I've seen) don't come with one - you have to purchase it separately. It comes with its own hardware for attachment to the panel.

So the question is -

Is it a sub panel or a main panel ?

And yes it matters !

A lot !

Sorry guys, it is a Homeline. It is the green bonding screw. It is a main panel. I understand that a subpanel doesnt require a bonding screw. Im clear on where it goes now. Some'm panels are different and I just wasn't sure. Thanks guys

The locations of the bond screw or strap is clearly labeled on the label.

Glad you got it sorted out. Hope you don't think my previous post was too harsh. Reading posts in Electrical from folks who don't seem to know what they're doing make me cringe. Bad plumbing will get you wet; bad wiring will get you killed.
