Quick Release Landing Gear Pull Pins

After having one of these shear off because I didn't get it completely engaged I decided I needed a better visual confirmation that the pin was fully engaged.
Red tape is a pretty good visual.

I'd go with paint as it won't get gummy and jamb up the spring action of the pin as tape eventually will.
