    Hello

    Want to add a few circuit breakers to an existing box in a residence.

    Hate to pull one out to take to HD, and realize that there are
    many different physical sizes of these things.

    Was wondering if anyone might happen to know what circuit breaker
    models (single pole, 15 amp) will fit in a:

    LX112-24 by the Federal Pacific Electric Company

    who I understand is no longer in business. (true ?)

    Thanks,
    B.

    One example of a 'behind the meter' surge protector:

    They typically cost more money for less joules.

    To combine other posts in this and so many other newsgroups
    into one response: may be good reason why no one will supply
    parts for your breaker box. The manufacturer is Federal
    Pacific or FPE. Box may be the type that has a notoriously
    history. Learn if your breaker box is that dangerous type as
    demonstrated here:
    http://www.inspect-ny.com/fpe/fpepanel.htm

    You might consider first replacing the breaker box. This
    would also upgrade the earthing that was not sufficient for
    surge protection 25 years ago.
