I have an outlet I am going to move up the wall. The outlet has two cables running to it. My question is, if I run a new straight down from my new outlet location, do I just tie together all three cables together at bottom, cap them, same color, and wire up the new outlet at top with the other end of the new cable?
I will be putting a blank face plate at the bottom where the tie in will be per code so it is accessible. Please let me know if this is correct, I have some electrical knowledge just have not done this before and want to make sure it is acceptable.
The tabs appear to be intact, so am I safe to assume if I wire this up like I spoke of I will be ok?
