It looks like the quick way around this is to disassemble the alarm and remove the yellow cap. :D
If the affected units are in possession of folks who are ept in doing things for themselves.
What you suggest would take malice of forethought.

I was in the Owings MD USPS office to get mail from my PO Box just the other day. They have on the ceiling a 15 yo smoke detector in the lobby! I can tell just by looking at it.

This company also just went thru a huge extinguisher recall. I checked several around the house and on the boat to see if they were in the recall batch.

I think I'm understanding what you are saying here. I believe the protective cap is likely covering where the smoke goes. Most likely a production mistake. So if you remove the protective cap, test the detector with smoke, it works. Then It's good.

I think a lot of folks today, have defective reasoning skills, unlike those shown in your answer.
