I've tried different adjustments from super tight (locks up) to super loose (why bother...) to try and compensate, but I've never dialed it in perfectly. For now my latch is moderately loose and I have to give the tire a shove toward the truck each time I want to open the carrier. It's a nuisance for sure.
Hmm, my pin is working great. There is really no movement of the arm at this point, and the only thing I have to do is open the latch first, to take pressure off the pin, and it slides right out. The latch is now nice an easy to open.

I'm not following what you mean by adjustments? Are you talking about the pin or the latch?
