Also you can pull forward or back up a bit to relieve torque.

I have never beat the pins out

We went to Pender and they were great about showing us the whole bit and giving us the complete sequence that will always release pins. And they are right!
1) Put car back in park and start it.
2) If locks will release easily, do so. If not, full steering lock left, release lock(s), full steering lock right, release lock(s)
3) Should be enough 'wiggle' now to pull pins. If sticky, I just wiggle the bar a bit and they almost always pull right out.
4) If pins STILL sticky, do the steering lock left, pull pins, steering lock right, pull pins.

I had ONE time when the slant was pretty bad, so I had spouse put foot on brake and put in drive. Quick foot off and back on and it moved enough to release.

BTW, 2x on going to Pender. They did our whole install and it worked out great.
