Installing an outside receptacle

 

 

The easiest way to bring power to the outside of your house is to install a receptacle directly behind

an existing interior receptacle. Be sure that the interior receptacle box you choose has room for new

wires. Codes require a GFI receptacle with a weatherproof cover plate and a spring loaded door.

 

 

 

 

1. Drill a hole to the outside.

Shut off power. Remove the faceplate and the interior outlet. To accurately locate your new

receptacle, create a knockout hole in the back of the box, and drill a hole through the house to the

outside. T make sure you have room for a box on each side drill off to the side.

 

 

2. Cut the exterior opening.

Find the hole on the outside of your house, and draw an outline of the new box. Drill a hole at each

corner of the box, and cut with a jigsaw. If you have a masonry exterior, drill a series of holes closely

spaced holes with a masonry bit. Knock out the hold with a cold chisel and hammer.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Connect the cable.

Cut a piece of cable long enough to allow you working room. Connect it to the interior box, you will

need a helper to reach through the exterior hole and hold the locknut in position while you tighten

the locknut. Attach the cable to the exterior box too.

4. Make the electrical connections.

With the box pushed into place, strip the sheathing and the ends of the wires, and make connections

on both ends of the cable. Be sure to connect to the line terminals on the GFI receptacle and the

load terminals on the existing interior receptacle.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Install the box and cover.

Attach the box firmly in place. With a masonry wall mortar the box in place. Fasten the GFI

receptacle to the box. Finally add the gasket and weatherproof cover plate.
