    There's no other option but to straighten it. Generally tweezers and an old credit card tend to be useful, or some kind of small pry tool.
  2. Agree with the preceding post.

    Will add that sometimes you can get the pin inside of a small straw-like/hollow tube.

    E.g., the hollow tube used with canned air. Or a hollow plastic coffee stirrer - if stiff enough.

    Work the pin into the straw/tube and straighten.
