Instead of splicing the ground wire to the pigtail, terminate it at the green ground screw.
I am trying to change the outlets and switches in my condo. There is a half hot outlet in the living room. I replaced the switch and outlet, broke the brass tab bridge. The outlet works for supplying continuous power to the devices/lamp plugged in. However, the problem is that the switch doesn't control the top of the outlet as it used to (nor the bottom). What am I missing?
I have an outlet that's half and half as you described in your article. I have the power supply coming to the outlet, and then I have a 12-3 going back to the switch with the neutral ground or the neutral capped off. Can I put another switch next to that? How would I wire the next switched power to my front porch light?
