We painted our first floor and the outlets are all brown so I wanted to replace them and the switches with white ones. In doing so I was taking a ground wire off the old outlet and it snapped off of the main ground wire. It looks like the main ground wire is coiled up and a small piece of ground was used to connect to the outlet. What are my options here? Should I try to uncoil the ground? I thought there was some kind of electrical nut that I could use to attach more ground as well?
The copper cable here is the ground which had a thin wire coming off of it that snapped off to attach to the outlet.
Thanks in advance!
