Note how the number 10 bare copper ground wire is shaped in the rear of the generator inlet box and then wrapped around the green ground screw using the included clamp.

Here’s a close shot of two Ideal 30-454 Wing-Nut Blue Wire Connectors being used to splice short pieces of #8 copper wire to the existing stove feed wire. This was necessary in order to relocate the existing stove circuit breaker down a few spaces to make room for the generator circuit breaker.

Note how tightly twisted together the #8 wires are before the blue wire connector is screwed on.
This is what the Cutler Hammer circuit breaker panel looked like prior to the installation of the interlock kit. Fortunately there were five available spaces in this 30 circuit panel. The interlock kit for this particular CH panel requires three spaces on the top right.
