I need a part # for a Square D filler plate

Greetings. Selling the house and one of the niggly inspector requests is to put a filler plate in an electrical box that was for a hot tub. All the filler plates I find are for single-pole breakers. This was a 2-pole breaker 21/4 X 13/8 inch hole. Any idea where I can find one specifically for the box?

Do you still have the double pole breaker you removed? If so, just reinsert it (don't attach any wires to it). If you don't have it, it might be as easy buying a new double pole breaker just to fill the hole up Might want to check with the inspector first to see if he'd accept that. I know it's OK in my city.

Agreed with BeachBoy, no reason a disconnected breaker wouldn't work.
Usually two single pole covers will cover a double-pole breaker. Might need some tape or something to keep them secure though (at least in my experience).

If you already have those fillers, use 2 of them. Otherwise, do as others have also suggested and fill it with a 2-pole breaker.

Joe is correct. Filler plates only fill one space at a time. You just keep adding them in until you fill all the spaces.

Thank you all. i appreciate the input. I did get some regular filler bland but 2 of them are too wide and one is not wide enough. i will go measure a 2-pole breaker and see if I can find one that fits. I'll let you know!
Thanks

is 1 3/8 W by 2 1/4 H inch hole only for a specific product? It doesn't seem to match anything I can find?

Different manufacturers panels use different width breakers. Some breakers are wider than others.
I carry blanks from several companies and mix them as needed to fill odd spaces like that.

You need a Square D QO filler, not a Homeline filler.

Each of the Square D QO filler plates I find are 3/4". Not 1 3/8" unfortunately.

It's a Square D QO disconnect enclosure, any QO series 2-pole breaker will fill the hole. By the way, a 2-pole QO breaker measures 1 1/2" wide.
