1up USA quick rack ball stuck

Moved my 1up rack over to my wife's car this morning. I reached under the hitch to make sure it had a backing plate , but the rack in a and tightened. Screw bottomed out, but still wobbled. Came to find out that the hitch tube ends about 3 inches before the backing plate.

Now the ball wont retract fully and cant get the hitch out. Anybody else have this problem? It is currently soaking in PB blaster. Thoughts on how to get it unstuck?
