I've tried wiggling, approaching from a different angle i.e. from higher up, from lower down, etc. The plugs have not gotten any better over time, and it's very frustrating. I'm thinking this is some sort of child proofing in the building code? Please tell me the trick!
I have a three-prong extension cord that was frustrating to use. In fact I couldn't get it into any outlet. After carefully inspecting the cord, I discovered that one prong was slightly longer than the other! The only way I can get the plug into the outlet is to angle it so the shorter prong goes in first. I don't have this problem with all my other "normal" extension cords.
