I have been asked to reconnect a music Kill switch on a commercial Dj booth. Two single pole breakers have been tied together with a peg thru the throw handle on the breakers. One breaker controls dj booth power - the other is connected thru a normally open switch that connects to ground. ie: Close the switch breaker trips opening power breaker. This is a "reconnect" ~
iwire, good point there! Most sound equipment people I have worked with would have a heart attact if the amp fans were not allowed to run and cool the system before dropping power to it. Definately not good for the equipment either.

how about using a GFCI instead, and using a pushbutton to connect the ground and neutral together.
This would violate 250.24(A)(5)
250.24(A)(5) Load-Side Grounding Connections. A grounding connection shall not be made to any grounded circuit conductor on the load side of the service disconnecting means except as otherwise permitted in this article.
How about running a switch leg, or use a contactor etc.
There is no need to short a breaker or trip a GFCI.
