Yikes. Much ado about next to nothing.
People do this stuff every day, I skimmed one post on here where
a guy told of using the breakers every single day of the year to
turn the store lights on and off. I would hazard a guess that
this happens a few hundred thousand times a day in our world.
Is it "code", is it "right", is it "safe"??? Is it reality?
Probably not, don't judge, for all but total morons, you bet.
Results of repeated applications: breaker wears out, won't hold
one position or the other. Solution: $4.00 and 10 minutes for
installing a new breaker.
Results of REALLY repeated applications: you wear out the stub
on the bus bar, the breaker won't stay in it's slot. Solution:
$5 for a new breaker and a snap-in hole filler, move breaker
to a new position.
What the fugg is all of the fuss about???
