As more and more electrical equipment is used in the home today, extending existing wall socket circuits or installing new ones is a common project undertaken by DIY electricians.There are several ways to power the newly installed socket: you can access the existing socket circuit, you can run the new circuit from the service panel, or you can access the light switch circuit.The National Electrical specification allows this method as long as the point you connect contains the neutral conductor of the circuit.Turn off the circuit breaker that protects the light switch circuit to be accessed.Find the cable from the service panel to enter the switch box of the switch circuit.As usual, electricians always connect this cable to the switch box closest to the panel.Check to ensure that when the power is off, the circuit is safe.Contact Voltage tester near switch cover plate.If the circuit is safe, the tester will remain silent.Mark a position on the wall to install the socket.Use an electronic stud meter to ensure that you do not drill or cut the stud drill on the wall.By convention, the purpose of installing the outgoing box is to make the top of the box 15 inch above the finished floor line, but install your box to match the height to the height already installed in the room.Place the opening of the \"old work\" box against the wall and draw around it.Drill a hole in every corner of the outline.Complete the removal of the cut with a jigsaw or key hole saw.Remove the mounting screw from the light switch and pull it out of the box.By releasing the terminal screw, disconnect the black wire from the dark screw on the switch.Cut off the loop at the end of this line.Remove 3/4 of the insulation material with a stripping clamp.Remove the mounting screw from the light switch and pull it out of the box.By releasing the terminal screw, disconnect the black wire from the dark screw on the switch.Cut off the loop at the end of this line.Remove 3/4 of the insulation material with a stripping clamp.Insert the cable end into the opening on the \"old work\" box.Push the box into the wall opening and secure it in place by turning the mounting wing screws clockwise.Remove the jacket of the cable with a tool knife.Strip 3/4 of the insulation from the black and white insulated wires.Use the long-The sharp clamp makes a ring at the stripping end of these wires and at the end of the bare copper ground wire.Connect their coils to the socket by placing the black and white wires under brass and silverColor screw in clockwise direction and tighten the screw on the wire.Connect the bare copper wire to the green screw in the same way.Install the socket in the box.Put the cover plate in place.Remove the cable sheath and peel off the wire where the wire enters the switch box.Cut a 6-off from another cable-Black wires make inches of tail fiber wires.3/4 of insulation is stripped from both ends.Make a loop at one end.Connect the black pigtail wires to the two black wires in the box, fix the ends of their stripping side by side, and screw the wire nuts.Connect the new white line to two in the box in a similar way.Repeat the bare ground wire.Connect the loop on the tail fiber wire under the dark screw on the switch.Install the switch in the box.Open the circuit breaker.
