    Default plugging up the holes left on breaker box

    I just finished my re-wiring project and dressed up my new 200 amp breaker box. I rearranged several wires from where I had temporary put them hence it had to punch out several new holes on the punch outs. Any thoughts of how to fix the holes that are left over. I still have the metal punch outs from my new holes, is there a way of attatching them back in the old holes or am I going to have to buy some plugs if they make such a thing.

    Do you mean the rectangular knockouts for the breakers? Yes, there are readily available filler plates that snap in these unused openings. If your panel is a Square 'D' brand, the part number is "QOFP" or "HOMFP", depending on whether you have a QO or Homeline panel. Similar filler plates are available from every manufacturer, and are available where you bought your supplies. They're about a buck a piece.

    Sorry, I mean the 3/8 inch round holes where the clamps go in. I cannot leave these open can I. I have about 6 of them after I re-arranged my wiring. thanks

    Oh, sure. They're readily available also. They are called "knockout seals", and they clip right in the round hole. They area available in every knockout size. The smallest size (likely the one you used) is called 1/2". Here's a picture:
