Now yes I am using the device as a junction. I am aware of the downside in terms of loose terminals causing all receptacles down the line to stop, but I'd be very familiar with the wirin to fix it.
Anyway I could pig tail the standard receptacles if you guys convince me to do so (I stopped after 2 receptacles as I had to leave to do other things.)
However my main issue was with the gfci I put at the beginning of the circuit to protect all receptacles down stream. D Those you gotta use as a junction and yet still force to pig tail the ground when you have already very little space left in the box (due to gfci size)
reply to Jack Legg Jack, I wish they were back entry with screw terminals, but I needed all tamper proof receptacles in bulk. The choice was limited so I got stuck with screw terminals + backstabs(which I won't use).
Same thing for the self-grounding receptacles. There wasn't that option in store.
