There are two filler plates available for QO load centers, one for the older design and one for the current design QO load centers.

2) The part number QOFP is a plastic filler plate, for the CURRENT load centers with twistouts measuring approximately 0.75" x 2.31". This filler plate may also fit some of the older style QO load centers that have the same twistout measurements.
