I'm swapping out a light socket for some outlets in the garage, and the ground wire is running through a little clip in the box, with some extra coming out from there, not enough to hit my green screw on the outlet though. Wondering what to do with it, figured the options are:
- Disconnect ground from the box and connect it to the green pole on my outlet.
- Leave ground attached to box and splice extra length to reach green pole.
- Ignore ground on outlet (assume this is a bad idea).
Here's what I'm working with:
Which of the first two options is proper, or something else altogether?
