Sweetwater Bimini Frame

Hi, We recently purchased a used Sweetwater and when we were folding the rear bimini down flat onto the boat we broke one of the push pins which are really hard to work with. Wondering if anyone has found an easier solution to fold down the bimini and frame.
Thanks :)

    We just purchased a used 2012 and had the exact same issue. It was only one push pin that would not cooperate and its now broken. Looking for help as well!

    I had the same issue.  Found that the push pin holes were a little tight so I used a round file and opened them up a little (don't open them a lot). This helped.

    Thanks BLOWER64. Have the same problem-will try your remidy . Also helps to take pressure off the pin by slightly lifting the bimini .
