It sounds like the steering brakeout pin may be installed the wrong way. Mine was like that. Eventough it fit better, and to install correctly it need to be touched on a grinder, the longer part of the prawl has to go to the outside of the assyembly. You can also check to see if the "ramp" that forces the prawl to release is shimmed out too far.
Sounds like it's a maintenance/ adjustment problem, not a brand problem.
