    I was trying to pull out a charger, and it broke while I was doing so. Two pieces of the plug head are stuck in the socket. How can I remove it?

    Pull them out with your hands... If its off nothings going to happen but if you really don't want to then use rubber gloves.

    - turn off power to the building/area from the circuit breaker

    - use pliers to pull them out
    or
    - unscrew the face of the socket and pull them out with pliers


    Make sure to use insulated pliers or you'll be in for a nasty shock!
