    Default how to wire a Tamper Resistant Toggle Combination Switch/Receptacle to run separately

    I have a TR274V combination single pole switch and grounding receptacle. I would like to wire it to run separate from each other. One light and constant power to the outlet. I have two wires in the box only one hot one neutral.
    right now the outlet works when you shout off the light but when light comes on outlet goes off. Please help.

    You can't do it without new cable. That is a switch loop and both wires are hot. There is no neutral. One wire brings unswitched power to the switch. The other wire brings switched power from the switch back to the fixture.
