listed for two wires. There are 2 or 3 models from that manufacturer, but they look the same.


I also think there is one other manufacturer that makes a commercial grade breaker rated for two wires.

That is a QO series breaker from Square D. They also make a "Homeline" series breaker where the 15A and 20A breakers are also rated for 2 wires.

Cutler Hammer also makes a commercial CH series breaker rated for two wires.

Note that the important thing to remember is that the breakers that are rated for two wires have a special/larger attachment plate so that there will be no wire-to-wire contact ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
