The miniature circuit breaker tie bar lockout is typically used for circuit breakers with tie bar designs. It also fits single- or multi-pole breakers. The TBLO comes with a distinct design and it is operable with a single button. It is easy to install and use without the need for a professional. It also comes with a thumbwheel for convenient deployment.
To use a tie bar lockout device, start by placing the circuit breaker in the OFF position. Place the metal clip of the TBLO between the poles, under the tie bar. Rotate the thumbwheel in a clockwise direction to secure. Finally, attach a padlock to secure the TBLO in place.
