Huh! We found the opposite, that angling the plug at the start of plugging in worked fine. Still does. When we first moved in, I thought the receptacles were all jammed. They wouldn't accept a plug when it was pushed straight in. Then our neighbor said to angle, and that's what works for us.

What is interesting to me is that when I go to Home Depot or Lowes to buy a receptacle, none of them are these type, but all the old type. So if it's a NEC requirement, why are the old style still sold?

New construction code vs replacements.
