I can't believe they sell these.

For us lay people, could you elaborate please?

Why is it so hard to believe? Any electrical supply house sells them also.

Here is the Grainger's catalog

Ok I guess I can believe it, but why? even if these breakers are mfg'd by different company and the mechanical issues within the breaker have been resolved, it's still the same crappy stab-loc system. At those prices though, a couple replacement breakers could buy you a whole new panel.

Some people just can't be convinced that they need to upgrade!
