Clever idea. Did the springiness make the switch harder to turn on and off?
I'll answer that. As a quick fix before inspection, we unscrewed our breaker from the frame, laid a piece of latex tubing down flat where our breaker was, and screwed the breaker back down on top of the tubing. This whole operation took less than five minutes, and we never had the breaker trip after that. It didn't make the breaker that hard to switch, as the latex could only be compressed half a centemeter at most.
