Extra wire to do pigtails for outlet...splice romex?

4167 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  J. V.
To install the GFI outlet I have to pigtail the white together and connect them to the terminal and same with the black but where do I get the extra little wire to go from the pigtail to the terminal? Do I just splice open a romex cable or do they sell individual red/black, white 12awg wire for this?

You can usually put two wires under a screw on a GFCI. They have back wire terminals and allow a wire on each side of the screw.
Correct. If there are only two wires each, no pigtailing is required.
