i assume you mean the stainless pin that connects stirrup to keel, this pin is captive the 2 sides of the stirrup are connected higher up by a flange on each one that has a bolt through (as per Colin Twyfords mod on Hiron which I believe was written up in one of the bulletins), if you remove bolt this will allow the stirrup to be prized off, you may be able to do this without removing bolt but be carful not to bend stirrup. Not sure what your trying to achieve but it may be that you don’t need to remove keels as I dropped them and inspected shortly before I sold to you.
