New Outlet For Wall Mounted TV


I want to hang my tv on my wall, but the closest outlet is a half hot, switched outlet. Can someone please provide a wiring diagram>

If the existing box has space you would add a new cable and pigtail color for color into the constant hot side of the receptacle .

While you are at it, you may as well entertain handling your low voltage stuff. HDMI, coax, RCA, etc. can be run in a dual box like below and the receptacle is angled so as not to take up space with the plug hanging out.

Just making sure I understand, I would join the new wire, the old wire, and a spliced cut section with a wire nut. Then attach the open end of the cut section to appropriate screw?
