How to unscrew 28x1.5 adaptor from valve

Can someone advise how to unscrew adaptor 28x1.5 from the valve? Is there any special tool (some sort of screwdriver?) that can be used?
The problem is that I can unscrew the valve from radiator together with adaptor, the adaptor stays inside the valve. Therefore, I cannot adjust position of the screen which is very annoying. It also looks like the adapter is made from very soft plastic, therefore, I'm afraid to broke it. I would really appreciate your help.

I had that problem once... I used lubricating oil and pliers, it took a while, but I managed to do it without damaging the adaptor. Once you have lubricated it you only have to move it a little, so the oil penetrates in the grooves of the adaptor and then it becomes easier to remove.
