How do you go about wiring a double socket?


Answer by  JohnHolmes (2660)

A double socket is as easy as wiring a single one. Make sure you connect the positive and negatives to the correct terminal. After doing so twist them into each other and then into the main live line and ground using a twist cap sealer.

Run pigtails off of the main wire. Then wire the black to hot, the white to neutral and the plain copper to ground for each socket.

You have to cut the brass tabs between the two sockets which makes them act singly. Then you connect a separate circuit to each socket.

first the input and output has to be deducted correctly. then based on that wire has to be connected in the socket properly. if the wire is not connected correctly then it may cause problem in the whole electricity board and it leads to short circuit which will cause serious effect.

All you need to do is simply make two tails off for each wire in your tap. There will be two neutrals, two grounds, and two hots. Just tap them onto the outlets as you would normally.
