John Dirks Jr Posted September 9, 2007 Report Share Posted September 9, 2007 I found my first double tapped breaker lug. I know there is debate over where double tapping is acceptable. Most of the breaker lugs on this Cutler Hammer panel had the square flat washers with notches on both sides of the screw. This indicates that they can accept two wires, correct? The double tapped 20A GFI you see pictured had a different lug. It was more of an encasement type lug where the screw comes down on top of the wires. It looks like the lugs you see on neutral/grounding busbars. The panel listed this breaker as serving the master bathroom. Interestingly enough there was two dead outlets in the master bathroom. I did my best to try and describe the different types of lugs. If someone can provide a better way of identifying or describing styles of lugs, please do. Any opinions on this particular double tap? Sorry about the poor quality photo. I forgot to set the cam on closeup. Image Insert: 142.24 KB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
