For 1-pole QO GFI, EPD, CAFI, and DF breakers, what is the accessory to padlock the breaker in the ON and/or OFF position?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Resolution:
The following applies to 1 pole QO GFI, EPD, CAFI and DF breakers.

PADLOCKED IN THE ON POSITION
Catalog number QOHPL is a loose attachment that will allow the above breakers to be locked in the ON position only (not OFF position). Since this is a loose attachment, it stays on the breaker as long as the padlock is installed. When the padlock is removed, the attachment is to be removed from the breaker.
There is not a fixed attachment to lock the above breakers in the ON position.

PADLOCKED IN THE OFF POSITION
Catalog number QOGFI1PAF is a fixed attachment that will allow the above breakers to be locked in the OFF position only (not ON position). Since this is a fixed attachment, it stays on the breaker at all times. To lock the breaker in the OFF position, add a padlock.

NOTE: The QO1PA will not physically fit onto the above breakers.
