I just grab it with needle nosed pliers while the pin is 2/3 of the way through the spring and twist it around to wind it up before sliding the pin the rest of the way through.
It took more time to type this than it takes to actually do it.

Oh, and also, while the pin is out of the cover, check that the pin slides throu freely.
Many doors are slightly bent and the bend causes drag on the pin.
Straighten the door before you install it.
