I sold thousands of sets of Pinheads over the years. IMO they're not secure enough for disc front wheels, especially if there's any slop in the axle fit within the dropout.
As DCBO said, of the wheel is tight in the fork, any pulling when braking is because the front and rear wheel tracks aren't in line, so front end braking is creating a torque or pull.
