My forklock was the same, felt like I just might break something trying to lock it. I sprayed some lubricant (some teflon based product I have, cannot remember name off hand) in key insert and a bit of a shot on pin. beneath upper tree, then worked it while very slightly wiggling bars, to help pin insert. Wiggling bars ever sightly was the key to sucess with mine. After doing this procedure, it got easier each time, it now works fine. My guess is pin hole is sized just right and powdercoating, or slight missalignment causes the problem.
