Understanding QO™ Branch Breaker Handle Positions for On, Off & Tripped

Product Line:
QO branch breakers

Environment:
Handle Position of breaker

Resolution:
The 'ON' handle position of a QO branch breaker will be all the way toward the wording 'ON' that is on the face of the breaker, see below visual

The 'OFF' handle position of a QO branch breaker will be all the way toward the wording 'OFF' that is on the face of the breaker, see below visual

The 'TRIPPED' handle position of a QO branch breaker will be approximately middle way of the breaker between the wording 'ON' and 'OFF' that is on the face of the breaker.
Also, NOTE, the QO branch breakers have Visi-Trip™ indication, so a red flag will appear in the window on the face of the breaker when tripped. See below visual

NOTE: To reset a QO branch breaker that has tripped, push the handle ALL the way to the OFF position(see step 1 below), then all the way back to the ON position(see step 2 below).
Below is a visual for resetting a tripped Homeline branch breaker and this visual is also on the directory label of the cover, which is located on the back of the front cover door of the load centers.
