Unknown. I was given these by a friend, to make my renovation wiring go easier. I have never used them before. Wanted to double check before my first inspection next week. The wires are far more secure with 2 in each space. If there is no easy answer, I will look for the manufacturer online, I guess.

What are you powering with the mix of #12 & #14 in there? Looks like you might also be maxing out the box fill from just the little bit you posted.

This type of stacker allows two wires in each slot, but they have to be side by side, not on top of each other.

I have one 14/2 homerun coming from the sub panel into the box. It powers 1 switch which controls 2 recessed downlights and powers another switch which controls two runs of undercabinet task lighting (2 switch legs out to each side of the room, since the lights are not continuous), and a third wire goes across the room to provide power to a switch there which controls 3 accent pendants lights. Additionally, the 12/2 wire comes in from an adjacent outlet (not the code required dedicated counter outlets), to a switch which will control an outlet that a toekick heater fan will plug into. So basically, 3 switches with an extra feed out to another switch. It's a triple switch box. Do I need to go bigger for more capacity?

Is that a 42 cu in box? Should be stamped inside the back. You're going to have 3 switches? 2 hooked up to 14ga and 1 hooked to 12ga?
