You slide it trough #1 pin to punch out #3 (and vice versa)
You slide it trough #2 pin to punch out#4 (and vice versa)
I was under the impression that this was the norm... so much easier to pull out if the pins aren't stuck. Don't have to deal with a c-clip turned just enough to be in the way, or having to move a rod out of the way.
