Can you pigtail a GFCI outlet?
It is possible to pigtail a GFCI to protect more than one outlet. A ground failure circuit breaker (GFCI) uses a current sensor and a circuit breaker to disconnect a dangerous electrical circuit. A GFCI circuit breaker protects more outputs when the cables are wrapped with a jumper cable, creating a pigtail, and the jumper cable is connected to the GFCI.

Wiring a GFCI outlet with a pigtail involves removing wires from the electrical box, striping wire insulation, placing wires in their terminals, and wrapping the wires with a jumper cable.
