-- I was looking to pull power from the outlet.
How does "I have a middle of the run outlet" enter into this? Perhaps
we need a little more detail.
Based on the wording in your post, I had assumed you wanted to split
the receptacle and switch each one separately (e.g. for plug in lamps)
but needed to ensure that power still continued on to the downstream
What exactly do you want to do and how does this outlet enter into it?
