I have recently removed a wall bisecting a room containing two 120V outlets and a overhad light switch. I am now left with wires, outlets and a switch box which need to be removed.

Before demolition of the wall I shut off all power to the switch and outlets in that room at the power panel.

I would now like to cut the wiring and pull the cables back into the cellar for the outlets and into the ceiling for the switch.

How do I deadend the wires safely>

The wall switch is one of two in the room. One switch should remain live when I'm done. The oulets are no longer needed.

Pull the cables back as you describe. Intall a junction box on the end of each one. Put a wire nut on the end of each insulated conductor. Attach the ground wire to the box (if there is a ground wire). Put on the cover.

If the switch is one of 2 3way switches you will need to do some rewiring of the other switch and possibly the light that they controlled.
