Got into a bind lately. Wired a kitchen last fall, and the customer decided they wanted a pop-up receptacle in one of the countertops. So I downloaded a cut sheet from T&B, the granite guys cut the hole and now............... T&B isn't making them right now. All I can find out is they're on a 'permanent engineering hold'. Whatever that means.

So, after calling a couple dozen supply houses listed on-line and ending up with a batting average of 0.000, I thought I'd try a different tactic.

I'm looking for a SH with a Thomas & Betts KPR-15G-NKL pop-up receptacle.




If you could ask your local SH if they have one in stock, I'd appreciate it.

And that's why you don't have holes cut until you actually have the product in hand

I didn't. The HO did. I submitted a cut sheet, then never heard boo about it until I showed up for trim.

Someone suggested another product, but it's not a GFI and it's only a single receptacle. So that's not an option.
but since your in this jam can you gfi protect it at the panel and use the receptacle?

Can you convert the MWBC to a SWBC at the panel? (wirenut) ...

Any chance of cutting the hole out in the countertop larger, and using a different brand of pop-up?
