You can't put the pin in with the strap retracted unless the door is ... well, closed. It is easier to pull the strap out BEFORE it is installed on the car. After installation, space and access is limited and you risk scratching your car using whatever you can find (screwdriver, needle nose pliers, etc) to pull it out.
