Ok weve got the box installed on the wall and were ready to put the outlet in. What

were going to start with doing is were gonna take the wire and were gonna take a razor

knife and cut right down the middle about a half inch above the wire and cut right down

the middle. Just slit it right down the middle, be sure to cut down the middle because you

do not want to cut either side of the black or the white wire. And you want to stay right

in the middle cause the only thing you want in the middle is the ground wire. When you

get to the end were gonna peel that back and that exposes the wires inside. Pull back just

like that, if you dont get all the way to the end you can always pull back just like

that. Open it up and you got a white wire a black wire and also you got your ground

wire. Take all this stuff right here and cut this off like this. And then were gonna take

the outlet, on the outlet and on the outlet you have the brass screw, the brass screw

always goes to the hot wire, its usually gonna be your colored wire in this case its black,

and on the other side is your silver screw, your silver screw is always going to be your

neutral which is the white wire, and then you have the copper wire which is your ground

wire and this is going to go to the green screw on the side. Ok weve got our ground

wire connected to the ground screw now what were going to do is strip our black and our

white colored wires and on the back of the outlet you will see there is a little strip

gauge there which tells us exactly how much we need to cut off of each one, if you take

that and look at it it will tell you how much you need to take off. So were gonna take the

black wire, I have these wire cutters that will clip the wire at 14 gauge, so I have

it set at 14 gauge and well put it in the slot for 14 gauge,, strip a little bit of

wire off there. Now were gonna take some needle nose pliers and take those and bend those

around and make a little loop out of each one, small little loop like that, and you

just take the needle nose and make a little loop and youll get the perfect size every

time. After you do that, once again we said the white goes to the silver, and then the

color goes to the brass screw and take the white just like that, now youll notice

we got two screws here you dont need both of them so weve tightened one down, what

this is for is if you wanted additional outlets and break that tab, as long as that tabs together

you only need one side and that will control both sides top and bottom of your outlet,

so your gonna tighten the white down, flip it over and were gonna attach the black, Now,

were always gonna put the wires on where were turning the screws in a clockwise direction

and the reason for that is cause when were tightening the wires down. If we put the wire

on the other way we would be loosing it as were turning it. Thats basically it, weve

got the ground wire got the black and the white attached. You can mount these in the

box a couple of ways you can mount them like this or like that the only difference is the

type of plate you put on. Basically how you do this is were gonna install this one up,

I like to go ahead and put the plate on first, and you just put that on there, tighten these

two screws down, now after you get the plate on I like to take a little bit of black electrical

tape and just wrap it around the terminals on the outside of the outlet. Thats not

required by code I just like to do it cause it keeps it a little bit safer when you stick

it in the box or have to change the outlet later on youll appreciate that little bit

of tape on there so your edges dont hit the box or if the plug moves it around a little

bit you dont want the edges hitting the side of the box, just put a couple wraps of

tape around it just like that,

And then Im gonna take these wires tuck em like this. Now, this is a good time to

give them a little twist, maybe twist them with your linesman pliers a little bit. Make

sure its nice and tight so you got a nice tight connection in there. And then as you

put the wires in there you push the wires down depending on how much extra wire you

got, push it up so you kinda make an accordion S shape as your pushing it into the box so

your wires go back and forth. Soon as you get it in the box your gonna tighten your

top screw, and your bottom screw. Get those lined up and started,

then after you get the outlet in the box, basically you put a cover on and youre

all set. Take some cable clamps and clamp that to the wall, and your all set youre

done with the outlet.
