Shut the power off to the affected outlets at the main breaker/fuse box........test both sides of the outlet with a tester or a working lamp ....making sure the circuit is "dead".......

Remove the cover screw(s).......beneath the cover you'll find 2 screws........remove them and carefully pull the device slightly from the wall and turn it 'right-side-up'.........carefully replace the outlet without cutting/crimping/damageing the wires as you return it to the wall box......reinstall the two screws and tighten and replace the cover and screw(s)...........restore power and check your work.......doug
