Re: eliminating a receptical
DO NOT DO THIS.
remove the box and cap the wires and let the wires fall inside?
This is illegal and can be dangerous.
should i cap the wires and leave the box and cover it
Go to the hardware store and by a blank electrical cover to replace the receptacle cover.
All connections and splices need to be accessible.
Connect the white to white and black to black with wire nuts inside the existing box.
Then with electrical tape run a few strands around the white pair also covering the wire nut .... do the same with the black pair.
This will give some added strength to the connection along with some added safety.
