Glad to hear I'm not alone in putting flash on backwards, same thing pin dropped into locking hole.
Lucky for me it was only a cheap 19.00 flash ring.
Solution was to cut off flash with hacksaw using locking ring as a guide, cutting off the head released pressure on springs and off she popped.
One lesson learned the hard way.
Good times to you all and a merry Christmas.
