Try and compress the spring with the tool (or a small screwdriver, whatever) while pushing the pin back in from the other side.

Read your freaking manual. Geez louise you probably broke it trying to pound it in.

You have to insert the tool into the pin to both open it and close it.

ok, I admit, it has been about 6 months since I got it and forgot that I needed to use the allen key to put it back together, :8:. What a pain. I was pounding the **** out of it, and oddly enough the front pin I was able to push in. Anyone change the pins to standard pins?

a few people on here have done it if i recall, straight forward change out. But since you John Henry'ed the **** out of your factory pins you might want to try searching this forum for it, i believe someone walked through the steps they took to change them out.

Given his apparent lack of mechanical inclination and his "guess i'll beat the piss out of it" reaction, I would not recommend him taking on the above task.

If I do, I want a percentage...... ;-)
