Why don`t tandem breakers (HOMT) fit in all Homeline load centers ?

Issue:
An HOMT Homeline tandem breaker won't fit into a Homeline load center.

Product Lines:
Homeline Tandem Breakers (HOMT), Homeline Load Center

Environment:
Products sold in North America

Resolution:
The HOMT tandem breaker (such as HOMT2020) has a rejection feature (short notch) to keep it from fitting in Homeline load centers that are designed and UL listed for non tandem breakers only (such as the HOM120). Only Homeline load centers that are designed and UL listed for tandem breakers will accept the HOMT Tandem circuit breakers. See below figure and picture showing the difference.
