Step 7: Attach Receptacle to Box
Gently push the wires and receptacle into the box – don’t force it. If the receptacle won’t fit, carefully rearrange the wires until you can tuck them all safely in the box.
Once the new receptacle is in place, attach it to the electrical box using the two screws so the metal “ears” next to the screws on the top and bottom are flush with the wall.
