I was talking to someone the other day and they said that on a recent job they were fitting merlin gerin mcbs, and they dropped one of them and it broke into pieces, revealing that there was just a steel bar from the incoming terminal to the outgoing terminal, in other words they were fakes.

Has anyone seem something like this?

No problem with nuisance overload tripping then.

Best keep a fire extinguisher on hand.

And I actually highlight & save one or two now & again !: O)

Think this was the link...

or very similar... that slipshod highlighted in his post.

No harm in repeating.. well worth been aware of..
