Be careful to balance the load on the two branches of that multi-branch circuit, or you can overload the neutral wire (assuming it is a 240v circuit and you are sharing the neutral).

Thanks. It is a 240v circuit. I used a quad breaker with the two center 20s tied and two outer 20s individual. Even neater! (if you don't do this every day)

OK, you've lost me. Maybe a line diagrem would help. To me, a quad breaker means 4 20A breakers. Do I understand correctly that you have 2 regular 20A 120V circuits, and then a 240V circuit which you split at the receptable end? Are you sure you have 240V across the 2 center breakers?

I'm positive, but here's a couple more pictures. I double checked before I finalized the big plan over on the DIY forum, then went to Home Depot and narrowed down the plan with what was available to best suit my box/space requirements.

I appreciate you double checking though. Things like this can be a real hazard if not done correctly!
