Default Boilermaker Dip Tube is Stuck

I just bought a new Blichmann Boilermaker (10 gallon), installed the HopBlocker and brewed my first batch with the new kettle. For whatever reason, I now can't get the dip tube back off to remove the HopBlocker.

Like I said, I just bought the equipment, so maybe I'm doing something wrong, but when I originally removed the dip tube, it was as simple as pulling it out. It now seems to be stuck solid like it's locked in, but I can't see anything and the HopBlocker is blocking my view.

Am I missing something? Is there a lock I can't see?

there is a set screw on the collar of the diptube that expands in a hole to secure the diptube in it's spot. Remove the hopblocker, and loosen the set screw.
