You might be wise to consider some sort of alternative product as my experience with these World Friendship products have been discouraging.

Thomas & Betts is a popular name in the electrical industry. Should not be to hard to find. If you do a Google search for T&B breakers a bunch of places show up that sell them. Not sure what type TBBD looks like???

You should not need a "Special" circuit breaker, if what you are looking for is 120 volt A/C over current protection. Most common snap in breakers found at electrical supply houses and maybe even the home improvement stores should have them. Take one with you for comparison and you should do fine.

Thanks Gary

Called and they do not stock the TBBD2030 or know who of a company that does.

Sent email to T & S requesting name of stocking point but have received response.

Have searched the Internet pretty thoroughly without luck.

Would appreciate any addition info from anyone who has found the breaker or an acceptable substitute.


Thanks

Jim Ross

To clarify what you are asking for .... The T&B TBBD 3020 is a 3 pole 20 amp breaker. The T&B TBBD2030 is a twin 1 pole breaker that has one 20 amp and one 30 amp breaker. There is a big difference between the two.

ITE Siemens, Square D Homeline (not QO series) and GE all offer a breaker that you can use in place of the T&B. Some people call them piggy back, twins or waffer breakers. Combinations of 15's and 20's are easier to find than a 20 and a 30.

As suggested take the old breaker and go to Home Depot or Lowes and see what they have to match.
