Install & Replace

Installing an outlet/switch combo

Hello,

 

Any tips on how to wire up an outlet/switch combo like this one http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xgk/R-202027001/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053 ?

 

I'm installing it to replace an existing light switch and I'd like the outlet to always remain 'hot' even if the light switch is in the off position.

 

Thanks!

Please seek out guidance from a local code council before tackling this project. In the meantime, you can find some general guidance for this type of project on the How-To section of our website.
