Can't find anything wrong there. Be careful. Shut off the main breaker. Even then, watch what you touch.

I personally find it easier to install the breaker first, and then connect the wires to it, but that is obviously a personal preference.

As John said, do this with the power off and be careful anyway.

If you really want to be safe, turn your main breaker off when you install the new breaker.
