Default C-01426 Canopy Latch Pin

Hey guys, is the C-01426 Canopy Latch Pin supposed to be flush when retracted or does it protrude a bit? By the book, mine sticks out about 1/4.

Remember reading about this exact question from someone else just days ago. I will be at this step within days so hopefully we will get an answer here.

The very tip does stick out a little bit but not a 1/4". It certainly does not touch the canopy blocks.

Just approximate it for now, then when the canopy is installed, make the final adjustment to just clear the plastic blocks on the canopy frame when closing, then adjust the micro-switch to trigger the warning
