Need to replace fed thru outlet
Found another outlet needing replacement. Instead of being pigtailed or using the second set of screws 14/2 run coninuous thru one set of screws with a portion of insulation removed.
Im assuming snipping the wires and pigtailing a short piece with a yellow wire nut is the proper fix but the box is 4x2x1/2 approx and my reference book says I can only have 5 #14?
What would be the proper fix?
Replace outlet in in current configuration and try to get the loop around the new screws (remove screw totally to do it?)
Or would I use the second set of screwson the outlet in this case to feed thru?
