I have had some engine alignments silky smooth and others were you have to use a hand to remove it with a slight twist. If you install the tool and it bottoms out and you don't have to beat it in or push it in with the palm of your hand, thats pretty good. Pulling it out should be almost as easy. You may have to twist it slightly to get it out but not pulling on it with 2 hands. You should be able to put it in and out with one hand and no excessive force.
Sounds like you got it to me.
