I need to get rid of this outlet for a wall bed installation.
From what I gather to disable the outlet..
- turn power off from main panel
- disconnect the wires from the outlet
- use copper twist-on wire connectors to connect the 2 black wires together and 2 white wires together.
- push it all back in there and seal it up.
My questions are
did I miss anything? I would rather do this myself if it's a small job without need for an electrician
What should I do with the single ground wire? leave it uncovered and shove it back there anyhow?
[unrelated] why are outlets designed to stick out?
