Installing a GFCI without downstream protection

2507 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  seharper
I am installing an outdoor outlet in my backyard. There’s an existing receptacle on the wall that’s facing the backyard. I drilled a hole through the opening for the existing receptacle to run the wire to the backyard.

The question is wiring. I want to put GFCI for the outdoor outlet to have extra protection. Normally GFCI is installed first in line for downstream protection but in my case, I don’t want the outdoor outlet to affect other receptacles on the circuit. Is there a way to wire a GFCI without the downstream protection?
