Furman Power device not working in Europe with travel adapter!

I need help

I came to EU from US and I have an SS-6B which is causing immediate short circuit of the whole installation when plugged to a US-EU adapter (for using several equipment that supports 120-240V but uses US plug).

I used EU equipment (supporting 120-240V but with EU plug) in the US with no problems, for years.

The US-EU Adapter is a travel adapter with ground pins for both ends (ground connection is on).

Should ground lifting avoid short circuiting?... (I don't really need ground - I want to connect a laptop and a couple external FW hard drives)
