One thing to keep in mind, the overload could have been caused by any of the system parts anywhere downstream of the popped pin. If you have the older magnetically latched type it might be simply a firmer than normal landing.
Every company has adopted their own procedures for dealing with the pins being popped from "just push it in" to a complete friction/torque check and everything in between. Make sure your company doesn't have some sort of monitoring requirement before you just sign it off.

Quoting Avioniker (Reply 3): I haven't seen you asking questions about the 757's before. Here's a fair starting point
Have been asking a few last few months.
My Company might get B752SFs next year,So was doing some Advanced Studies.So many doubts keep creeping up.So I might have a lot more questions on the B752s in the next year until I get my notes or work Practically on the Bird
Any Photographs of the Pin.
BTW Thanks for the link.
