Any good youtube videos or website for wiring junction box?

Post by hardsoftrock » Fri Sep 20, 2019 8:40 pm

Hey guys. I'm looking for a sanity check on wiring a junction box. It's been awhile. Specifically, one wire in and two wires out (each going to an outlet. Any help?

Assuming wire in is the power and each of the two wires out are feeders, simply twist all the whites together and nut them, blacks together w/nut, and grounds together with crimp or nut. If this junction box is also one of the outlets, then add a pigtail in corresponding color to each of the bundles to attach to the outlet. When wiring an outlet, the neutral and ground terminals are on the same side of the outlet, the "hot" or black wire goes to the other side.

Don't forget a grounding pigtail to ground the box (in Canada, any material; in the US for just steel boxes).

Also if wiring a device, use its terminal screws and not any "back-stabbing" holes; back-wire screw-tightened holes excepted.

Sprucy and Aaron described well, and it's a fairly simple job.
Shannon has this video (for receptacles, but general idea is the same)

He has quite a few other electrical videos on his channel that should help bring you up to speed.
