Does it matter which way I insert the shuko plug into this adapter? (i.e. is it ok if the shuko goes in upside down?)

No either way is fine. Further info on the "Shuko" socket/plug specification can be found here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schuko

Will this work on an item with 220 volts 50hz 

Asked by: Juliem
As long as that device is fitted with a "Shucko" plug then it will be fine.
