This should drop the ball out of the coupler without the extra physical exertion of prying or jumping on the ball/coupler assembly. ��
If you've got the old style most of us are used to, like this one, this method will probably work.
But if you have one of these, which FR seems to have started using sometime between 2013 and 2016, it most likely will never "drop out on its own." At least that's been my experience.
