Chosen Solution

I think you'll need to return your adapter as there is a better and easier solution here.

First you'll need to order the following from Other World Computing: OWC Envoy Pro Portable, Bus-Powered USB 3.0 Enclosure For Apple Flash SSDs (June 2013-Current Mac Models).

Follow this IFIXIT guide to remove the SSD from your system so you can put it into the Envoy case: MacBook Air 13" Early 2014 Solid-State Drive Replacement.

Once you have things setup you should be able to access your files from another Mac.
