Question about Cooper Wiring Devices 277W-BOX SINGLE POLE SWITCH & RED NEON PILOT LIGHT
Im trying to wire a light to a Cooper 277 pilot switch. The # 2 diagram in the instructions say to wire a jumper from the brass screw to the silver screw in order to get the pilot light to be OFF when the switch is ON. Of course this only feeds the hot back thru the neutral and shorts everything out when you turn the switch on. What am I missing here?

SOURCE: I am trying to wire
Open following link for cooper 277 wiring illustration:
Wired as shown in illustration, the pilot light and the Load will come on each time switch is turned on.
The illustration show Load is light bulb.
In your case, the Load will be an outlet instead of light bulb.
So the Load will have 2 wires. The black wire from switch connects to brass screw on outlet. The neutral connects to silver screw.
Bare ground wires connect to green screws.
