I want to have half of an outlet switched (ie one outlet switched, the other powered at all times). I believe this outlet was wired this way at one time.

There is a white and black pair to the top outlet. There is a pair of red wires to one terminal, same side as the black but on the lower terminal. There is a single white wire, not connected.

Both terminals of the outlet are bridged. I think you need to break this connection on one side? Both sides?

I appreciate your help.

from what I know, I assume you know how to install a switch, find power from wires then you can break off one tab, think of the outlet as a switch if you break off a tab and leave other(neg) the neg is to both where as the hot is to the one, then you would need to "jump" power to a switch. Im not an electriction but if you sit and think about it you'll figure it out. Good luck. Hope it helps some
