Question about LEVITON MFG. CO., INC. R13-07299-0NA GFCI W/WALLPLATE15A ALM
You are trying to replace a 4-way switch with a receptacle. The best that you can hope for is a switched receptacle. In the same box you should see two white wires wirenutted together. That is the neutral. You will have to pigtail off of the whites wires to the silver (or white, neutral) screw on the receptacle using the same gauge wire. Then, pick a pair, say the two blacks, and wirenut them together with a pigtail to the brass screw (hot) on the receptacle. To finish, wirenut the two reds together. Do not connect them to anything. Don't forget to also pigtail the (bare) ground to the green screw on the receptacle.
As a result, you will find that the receptacle will only work when one of the other 3-way light switches in the circuit are operated, again, this is NOT best practice, but will accomplish what you are trying to do.
