If they are really Tapcons, they can be unscrewed. May take a socket and ratchet as they really hold. Good luck.

The only way to remove these is to grind off the heads. The part within the concrete is a permenent fixture and short of digging them out they are there to stay.

Anything is worth a try. If the crowbar attack does not work a 4" angle grinder will.

You may not be able to get an angle grinder in the stud chanel without flattening the lip of the chanel with a hammer.
