Help with closing an outlet

last month
last modified: last month


What is the best and easiest way to close this outlet safely as I am no longer using it? Previous owner left it as is.

I am thinking I should:

1. identify the breaker and turn it off or use non-contact voltage detector

2. tape the ends of the wires

3. cover with a plate

I am only worried about those exposed wires. Do they belong to the switch?

Thank you!
