Electrical Switch Wiring: How to Wire a Switched Plug using a Wiring Diagram


Question about Wiring a Switched Plug:
I am replacing a split plug for floor lamp.

Could you please provide a diagram for a split plug. My husband wired it originally and is trying to replace the plug he but cannot seem to get the wires hooked back up for the plug to work.

The plug is connected to 2 separate switches to turn the floor lamp on I think the top is hot all the time and the bottom is for switches.

Your help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks
Beverly H.
