What you 2 are looking to do is end up with 2 breakers in a 1/2" slot, and that isn't going to happen. No such animal exists.I too am looking for a 20A/20A GE SlimLine (1/2") piggy back type breaker. Have we confirmed that GE does not make one? Does anyone else who's breaker will fit?
Maybe you should come up with a different plan? I know that Square D makes tandem breakers in the Homeline series that would fit your panel, but it is not UL listed to be used in that panel.I am having a similar problem, but don't think I am trying to put 20 lbs of potatoes in a 10 lbs sack.
I want to put two single pole circuits in a 1" slot (not 1/2"). I cannot seem to use two 1/2" breakers. My load center has the small (vertical tab either above or below the main busstab, but not both. Thus I can put in a 1/2" breaker, but not two in the same 1" slot. (So it doesn't do me any good) That is why I was looking for a tandem duplex 1" breaker that would use the main busstab. I gather from the previous posts any my searching that there is no such breaker from GE. Any other ideas? Other manufacturers of compatible breakers? Are the busstabs individually replacable?
Correct, not every slot allows for it. If you go to the other extreme of your panel you may find that the slot will accept (2) 1/2" breakers. for example, the panel has 20 slots and 10 are able to accept 2 circuits. Those 10 may be at the top or bottom of the panel. if you original designed location was at the top of the panel, then look near the bottom of the panel to see if it fits.red86 the answer to your question is no, not every panel allows it, and even in the ones that do, not every slot may allow it. A 20 slot panel is, however, likely to allow it on at least some positions.
