Hi.
Been to a few electrical stores and cannot find which brand of plain 15 A outlets secure the wire under a squarish tab that is pressed down by the screw to hold the wire end.. Do you know the brand ? Nothing to do with stabbing wire ends, or circling the wire around the screw.

Great information, fellows. Screw and clamp/back wire clamp. The image on post #3 is what I remember... but the wire under, not around. Will look for that Eaton brand. Thanks.

There are several brands that sandwich the wire under a clamp plate. Many brands show different models, depending on the desired quality level and price. Those devices priced at $4.95 for a package of ten will not have that feature.
