I am having an issue getting this trailer couplers' hinged jaw to move freely. The spring is good but isnt strong enough to push the jaw open. Has anyone had an issue with this style coupler and getting it to move? I had used penetrating oil all over the front of the coupler and on the under side. I then used a rubber mallet to pound it open and closed. I would prefer to not replace the coupler but here is a picture of what it looks like (not mine exactly since I forgot to take a picture while I was outside).
