Tamper resistant USB outlet

bought one of these on an Amazon discount. But I cannot plug into them except with brute force! Is a removal/workaround possible? Thanks!

Tell us exactly which model you bought. Send pic. Maybe if we see it we can offer some guidance.

Temper resistant outlets are a little harder to plug plugs, but if you really have to brute force, it is probably a defect. Get a replacement.

With a tamper resistant receptacle..... it is imperative that you push both prongs in at the same time.
