    No worries. The insurance adjuster will certainly track it down during the claim investigation.

    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    Not a bad idea, why didn’t I think of that. But crazy glue would probably be undetected.

    Breaker will still trip, just the handle will stay stationary. Just proves how dumb they are

    if those are semons brakers the handle has to move to the center to trip.
    We replaced ours with square d to prevent that problem from the staff

    Right, I haven’t seen one in years. But I remember seeing metal gadgets on breakers probably to stop being turned off by mistake. I don’t think they would make something to stop a trip?

    no they dont what the clips were for is to stop someone from manualy turning the breaker off by hand.
    were a pain in the ass to remove to reset them and are no longer sold in my area.

    I came across a panel once that someone spilled a soda down inside of. All the breakers were sugar welded on and wouldn't trip. We turned them off with a hammer and replaced them. The security guards used the mechanical room as a lounge.
