I have electricity coming into outlet box from two sources, one is coming via light switch and another one is coming from another outlet.
So I want the top of the twin outlet to be controlled by the switch and bottom of the outlet to be always on electricity.
The two power sources are actually on one breaker on the board, don't know if that info matters.
I read somewhere that I need to remove the break in pin of my outlet because the power to outlet is coming from two sources so each half of the outlet can receive power separately.
The thing is that I don't know how to remove or the break the connecting pin. Here is how my outlet looks like:
After long introduction let me repeat the question(s) :
1. How to remove or break the connecting pin on this outlet?
2. Am I doing something wrong at the moment, and I should be doing something else? (Like leaving the pin in place or something else)
