What is your method of massaging it open? This one seems pretty stuck. I have the side arms out, pull out the locking pin and put about all of my 185lbs into it. Is there a safe way to tap on it to loosen it? Can you tap from the base of the outer arm sleeve or is it better to keep working from the outside part at the awning roller?
