Which outlet is a switched outlet?
My DH is a simple project kind of guy, so when we wanted to change out our old outlets in the bedrooms we thought it would be simple enough. Each bedroom "had" a switchable outlet due to no overhead lighting and he just rewired the new outlet the same as the old one.
I never really noticed but months after he changed them I went to plug in a lamp and it no longer worked by turning on the switch. After reading many, many post on here I now realise that he didn't remove the tab between the outlet.
I would like to be sure that when he goes back and removes this tab he gets the correct outlet. Is there a way to tell for sure which outlet once worked by the switch? Or does it really matter as long as it's on the same line?
Thanks for all your help on here
