To remove the captive eye pin:
1) Firmly grasp the center of the pin with vice grip type pliers
2) Gently tap the vice grips near the pin with a hammer, driving the pin out until the knurled end can be pulled with pliers. Be patient, don't hammer too hard or the pin will bend. If your pliers leave marks on the pin, make sure that they are not sharp so it doesn't cause premature failure to any of your soft equipment.
Always make sure when using screwgate karabiners, "you screw down so you don't screw up!" If you have to use the karabiner with the screwgate locking upwards, always check the karabiner before you use it, to make sure it's not coming undone and is still tight/locked.
