I don't have any specific knowledge of the outlets you have but if there is a screw near the push in hole, you may need to loosen the screw, push in the wire, then retighten the screw.

Just a guess.
Good Luck

If these are the factory quick plug type receptacles, You are correct, the wires are just forced between two sharp connectors.

If I remember correctly there should be a slot that you can push a small screwdriver down to take the pressure off the wire so you can remove the outlet without cutting the wires.

You have to push on the small slot and pull on the wire at the same time.

If I remember correctly you place the wire over the opening with the v shaped connector that is designed to grab and cut into the wire. Take a screwdriver and drive the wire into the opening. It has been about six or eight years since I installed any of these outlets. They are only used in the camper industry and are a pain in the butt. They are used because they are a quick install and not because they are good. ( A quick install by someone that does it every day.)

As I remember on mine the wires came out fairly easy and to install I lined the wires over the appropriate labeled spaces and used the "bottom plastic part" to push the wires down inside the fixture.
