InspectAPedia tolerates no conflicts of interest. We have no relationship with advertisers, products, or services discussed at this website.

We describe how to wire an electrical receptacle by making the right connections between individual electrical wires and the proper screw or clamp connectors on the electrical receptacle device itself. We also describe connecting the ground wire between the circuit grounding conductor, receptacle ground screw, and the electrical box if metal boxes are used. Watch out: Electrical wiring should be performed by a licensed, trained electrician and should comply with the National Electrical Code and local regulations.

Duplex receptacles have 4 screws for termination points along with a green screw dedicated for ground. One side of the receptacle has 2 brass screws and the other side has 2 silver screws.

You only need to connect to 1 screw on either side. If you look at the screws on one side you'll notice that a metal jumper connects the 2 screws together.
