Question about Leviton Electrical Supplies
I have a new plug and need to install it on an electrical wire to power a lamp
Posted by Anonymous on
power coming in from the breaker box: black wire will go to line-hot screw, and the white wire will go to the line-white screw. the switch wires coming out of the back of the gfci- 1 will go to the load-hot screw & the other black wire will wire nut to the black wire going to the light. the white wire going to the light must go to the load-white screw.

The gold terminal is usually the "hot" terminal (black wire), the silver terminal is "neutral" (white wire). Remember to turn off the power before you work on it.

Depends on whether you want the pilot to glow when the circuit is live (the main light is on) or to glow when the circuit is off. (The switch can be used either way, and I have used this switch in both configurations at different places.)
The wiring diagram is on the inside of the box.
In indicates that if you want the pilot light to glow when the circuit is off, then you only need two wires (the live and the return, usually colored black and white, respectively). However, you also need a ground. The instructions say that you need the ground for safety (and probably legal code) reasons, but I suspect that, without the ground, the pilot light won't work in this configuration.
However, if you want the pilot light to glow when the circuit is on, you probably need a three wire configuration (plus the ground).
Hope this helps.

A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.
You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.
If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.
