I had to extract a pin from a car couple years ago. Fortunately for me, it was one of the ones with a knurled knob so the pin was large enough to drill and tap for a small machine screw.
Your split ring pin is much smaller. Barring successful extraction with a dental or tool pick as suggested by Josh, consider soldering a wire to the top of the pin. Bend it in a small U shape so you can pull both ends. Dennis C.
