Frozen whisker poles

I went to the forespar site to double check remedies, they suggest soaking the pole in a rain gutter filled with white vinegar, seems the vinegar disolves the salt build up which is why the pole froze in the first place. They say the locking mechanism will be compromised if any other method is used. I know I''ve answered my own question, but thought you guy''s might want their answer too.
