Have you tried asking one of the assistants? All of those stores sell them as we've bought them there.

Re: finding right adapter

That plug is very unusual. Where did you get it?

I would cut it off and replace it with a usual Swiss recessed plug, available at Jumbo, etc.

It is not so unusual. I have a few like that.


Last week in the Fundgrube at Ikea (Spreitenbach) they had a large box of adapters the OP needs, selling for chf 2 per piece.


I usually buy adapters at Obi in Waldshut.

Why are you confused? This is Switzerland.
