Xtracycle Don't do work early in the morning, HELP???

I got up early all excited to put together my adventure kit for my xtracycle to day and was moving around the long loader and I messed up and the bottom open part ran over the depressed pin of my wide loader and now its stuck.

Any ideas, you would earn a six pack from me the next time I see you. Other wise my only option is to cut the long loader.

Please help.

P.S. Xtracycles are a huge pain is the butt.

I'm not following. Drink some coffee, take a couple pictures, upload them so we can see. Don't cut anything.

If you want xtracycle advice you should put that in your title.

Sorry I can't upload pics I am now at work until about 9. I will try to explain again. On the xtracycle there are small holes. On the attachments are spring loaded pins that you depress and slide into the holes. It is like a breakdown kayak paddle or backcountry snowshovel. Once the pin slides into the hole it extends again. I have a longloader which basically looks like a capital J. The top of the J slides over a pin on a wideloader attachment. Unforunately where the "down tube" of the J meets the " top tube" is open and the pin locked into it and is now stuck. I can try to upload pics tonight, I hope this helps.
Thanks

Did you get anywhere with this? Sounds like a bit of a nightmare. I looked at my Xtracycle and longloader, but it's older and I'm not sure it's stock anyway --I got it used-- so no use for comparative purposes. Have you called the good people at Xtracycle.com?
