Default Keg Spear Stuck

Hey,

I am trying to dissassemble a sanke keg. it doesn't have a spring clip, you simply have to unscrew the spear with a key...

I managed to unscrew the key, but I can't remove the spear...I can only lift it out ~half an inch...I tried turning it slowly to see if things would line up, to no avail...


Any idea as to what I have to do to remove the spear?

if it's a heineken it's almost the same as a miller, just a little different position on the button:
