From the CPSC photo, it also looks like the little orange trip flag isn't present; you can usually see a bit of orange even when they're not tripped.

At least the "equivalents" are claimed to be UL-listed.

It looks like they tried to mimic an older style breaker, where the amp rating was actually stamped in the handle , but regardless what Noderaser stated the orange trip flag is not present in the counterfit but IS slightly in the newer ones, and if memory serves me good was present in the older ones that had the indicator as well.

This really stinks,...again.
I still have dozens of older style SQD QO cb’s that are brand new in the box and look almost exactly like that counterfeit one. I know that I bought them new around 2003, but am going to have a hard time explaining this convincingly to any weary customers or inspectors though. Maybe even to myself.
