I had plugged an appliance with an American plug into a European socket using one of the adapters, and now I was unplugging it. I pulled the appliance out. The adapter was left in the plug (which is common and not a problem). Using normal force I grasped the adapter and tried to pull it out of the socket. Instead of the whole adapter coming out, the plastic housing pulled away from the base of the adapter. The plastic threads holding the screw which attaches the housing to the base had stripped away under this quite modest force. The electrical contacts inside the adapter were left bare with full current running into the adapter. I restrained my impulse to pull the adapter out of the plug by the contacts and shut off the power to the socket before prying the adapter out of the socket with a screwdriver. I have used many similar adapters over the years and have never experienced anything like this before.
If you must remove the adapter: put the cover back on and CAREFULLY force the base of the adapter out using a firm plastic or metal tool which allows you to put pressure BEHIND it to pull it all out - while also being careful not to touch anything metallic in the outlet! A curved dental tool would work, if you happen to be carrying one with you!
On the other hand, flat 2-prong adapters are slightly more compact and fit better in your pocket. So if you want to get one, I recommend you at least find one that is rubberized or has ridges or a lip to make it easier to pull out of the socket. (The cheap ones made of hard slippery plastic are the worse). And make sure you don't overpay. There are dozens of merchants selling these; make sure you don't pay more than $2/pc including shipping.
Lastly, keep in mind, the schuko socket fits most European countries but not all - most notably UK, and Italy which have their own peculiar sockets.
