comment What can I use to build temporary walls in an unfinished basement?
Whether permits are required for small interior changes depends on your locale. If permits are required, you will have to comply with building codes. Putting up a curtain wall without full studding, etc. is not code complaint. If you want to do it right, build with standard framing.

@Jason The more important question is why was I using a toaster and more than one hairdryer at the same time?

@JustinK Don't color the red valve. The color is a safety feature.

@longneck I like your modification. And you could put stick-on lettering just a bit darker than the paint that said GAS SHUTOFF that would probably only be visible if you got up close.

Blank plates are very common in ceilings. You can paint it with flat paint that matches the ceiling (including the bolt heads) and it will virtually disappear. Any premade access panel is likely to be more noticeable. Anyone who opens it will understand that it is not electrical (and if they can't figure that out, they have no business opening it).

@TheEvilGreebo You are right, and I wasn't thinking of all the times I plugged in one too many hairdryers on the same circuit making my toast.

@TheEvilGreebo Yes, but isn't a short almost always the source of the excessive load? An appliance rarely decides to reduce its internal resistance unless circuits cross.

Isn't that what he wants? A higher chance of shutdown (either or both would disable), just in case one breaker doesn't trip as fast as he would like.
