Leviton Presents:, To Install SmartlockPro AFCI/GFCI Outlet - The 2 electric receptacles examined are the leviton 5230-wcp residential grade outlet that sells for around 60 cents and the leviton 5252-w commercial grade (also called “prograde”) outlet which retails for approximately $5.50. Both outlets are rated for 15 amps and 125 volts. The quickwire outlet has a small square hole within the again to insert the end of a screw driver to release the wire. I’ve observed from private revel in the flat spring noticeably weakens when the wire is released and consequently do no longer suggest reusing the quickwire approach if the wire is ever eliminated. Great to aspect wire the outlet rather. The quickwire hole on the back simplest accepts a 14 gauge cord due to the fact a thicker 12 gauge cord has a tendency to open the spring clamp, causing loose a connection if a thinner 14 gauge have been inserted later.
Thanks for a maximum informative article. From it, i used to be capable of pick out the existing connection. Extra importantly, i found out a way to get the again-stabbed wires out! Different articles i examine advised a way to placed a receptacle in, however now not how to do away with the returned-stabbed wires. I can note that, in this case, the antique wires regarded quite firmly set; i couldn't get them to transport despite the fact that i used to be seeking to. I'm able to use the aspect screws on the replacement. Just desired to mention “thanks” for well written, easy to apprehend article. I found out a splendid from this and could be replacing in all likelihood all of the retailers in my domestic as i’m positive if one has been backstabbed (as i’ve already located), it’s a pretty sure wager they all had been. As you’ve said, time is cash, however you could’t put a rate on protection. Thanks once more and glad new yr!.
> all three of the grounds were connected with a clamp(pigtail?) > To make one ground connect to the opening. That could be a copper crimp sleeve. I don’t like crimp sleeves due to the fact the electrician perpetually cuts off one or two of the ground wires at the sleeve making it not possible to cord a right pigtail with twine nut on all ground wires. My outlets have a floor wire crimp sleeve as seen in this picture. Electricians like crimp sleeves because they’re short and time is money. However the ground twine crimp sleeve possibly isn’t the trouble.
