The center hole between the prong hole is a screw that holds the cover on the backer plate.

Yes you will need a different type of box and trim plate.

Are you running a new circuit for the new receptacle?


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

The one you want to add is a nema 6-15, rated 250v, 15A. You’ll have to use a 2-pole, 15A breaker for it also.

Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should
