    Another great tip from DIYHIPCHICKS! New outlets have screw connections on the side and a push connections on the back. I always use the screw connection for a positive contact. The wire in a push connection can easily l loosen and wiggle out of the connection. Anyone who does DIY electrical should not use the push connection even though it is easier than twisting a wire around a screw.
