Instructions on Wiring a Half Switched Outlet Circuit
By Mark J. Donovan
In this video, Mark Donovan of HomeAdditionPlus.com, shows how to wire a half switched outlet.
A half switched outlet enables one half of the outlet to always be operational, and the other half of it to be controlled by a switch.
Warning: When working with electricity use extreme caution to avoid the risk of electrical shock. Make sure to first shut off power at the main circuit panel and then confirm all power to the electrical fixtures and boxes are off prior to beginning any work on them.
