Duplex crowfoot outlet with one outlet flipped

So both plugs will be correctly wired, assuming the entire device is in fact correctly wired. This one is Hubbell's P-1781

And, if you are getting shocked because the hot is on the wrong side of the plug, you can just use the other outlet to cure the problem grin
