Spark plug socket wrench boot stuck inside spark plug cylinder well

Any ideas on how to get it out? i've tried screwdrivers and anything pointy seems like i can't pierce the rubber.

Is it stuck where you can get the plug socket back in there? If not remove the plug again, remove the rubber, then slap it all back together.

Get a pick like dentists use to pick at your teeth.

Flip the car over. Works every time.

IF you can purchase a telescopic reach tool with a mini grapple, and electrician tape the metal body, it'll pay for itself in 4 mistakes.

This. If the boot won't grab the socket, spray the inside of the socket with a good coat of primer, let it dry overnight, and try again -- the combination of the primer's rougher surface and thickness should help it.
