That will work. It's your choice but I never use a receptacle or any other device to make a junction. Better to use pigtail leads for wire nutted connections to serve the receptacle so it won't become part of a down stream circuit.
Good advice. Unfortunately the other 3 receptacles before the last are probably daisy chained instead of pigtailed.Better to use pigtail leads for wire nutted connections to serve the receptacle so it won't become part of a down stream circuit.
Well if you feel ambitious you could re-wire all of the outlets with pig tails.Greatly appreciate everyone's experienced advice. I will go ahead and splice the connections and do it right. I now understand the reasoning, but didn't think it through that far in the "planning it out" phase. �� Tks!!!
Relying on the device to provide continuity is taking a chance.Using the screws would be my choice. There is no advantage using nuts instead of the screws.
