Does anyone have for sale the SQUARE D breaker that is in fact an am/fm radio? They came out with this novelty radio for their 100th anniversary but I can't find one!
If anyone has any for sale please let me know!!

Does it hook in the panel for while your working or is it battery operated and just sits around?


I rush in where others flee.

Somebody wanted it pretty bad to bid $122.50 for it. I hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas.

Yikes. And the only redeeming quality is the shape of the plastic cabinet of the radio.

I wonder if you can contact someone at Schneider/Square D to find out how to get one of these sets. Maybe they were just dealer/distributor giveaways that were given to new accounts?

Thanks for the posts! The eBay radio went rediculous for sure, by two newbies with "o's" so it was fishy in my opinion! I have already contacted Square D/Schneider and their promotion site and they don't even have anymore!! It must have been a regional promotion for their 100th anniversary as none of the suppliers in the Western North Carolina area have even seen one! Thats why I want one, being a novelty radio collector!! Any help to locate one for my collection would be appreciated {but not for $120+ bucks!!}
