    Since this thread started I recently decide to install one of these for my bathroom.

    I needed a plug and a switch to control a bathroom fan.

    To help illustrate I took a couple of pictures ..... since they are worth a thousand words ( considering the thousands of words in the discussion)

    Hope this helps others.

    This thread of messages was most helpful - thanks! Message #37 on page 4 was the one that cleared up the mystery for me; thanks to JLMCDANIEL for the schematic.

    Like some other posters, I purchased a Leviton "SmartLock Pro Switch & GFCI Outlet," but upon opening the box, was confronted with two black "Switch Leads" in addition to the expected "Line" and "Load" connections. The instructions gave no clue as to how to use the Switch leads.

    Using my ohmmeter, I figured out that the device's switch opened and closed the circuit to the switch leads, but apparently controlled nothing else.

    As previously explained here, the switch leads can be used to wire the switch in series with either a hot "Line" wire (to turn on/off power coming to the receptacle) or a hot "Load" wire (to turn on/off power going downstream to other outlets).

    That was the missing piece of info for me. It's all so simple once explained!
