Some VERY basic advice on adapters

Always inspect your adapter before mounting on to lenses and camera body.
Ensure that the fittings and screw are tight and check the release catch
for defects. Once fitted to the lens will be difficult to remove and need
to use a small flat screw driver to release the pin and allow the rotation
of the adapter to be removed from the lens. Always mount the lens adapter
on to the lens first and remove from the body with the lens adapter.
Otherwise if it jams, you have a problems to take it off and ensure that
the on/off switch of your camera is set to off to prevent damages to your
electronic contacts. Repairs are costly!

Thanks for the tips, Fred. Your advice is accurate with my Novoflex adapter. If I don't mount it to the lens first then the camera, I'd have a hard time combining the setup.

You are most welcome! I had this problem too and took me some time to figure out
how to solve it. It has not been a problem for me now and as long as you inspect
the mount before attaching to your lens, it will not cause any problems again.
The mounting screws must be tight or the catch will loosen and unable to remove
the adapter from the lens.
