In correspondence with Marelon (yes there were happy to talk with me) after breaking a handle off, they said to actually loosen the the seacock as if unscrewing it from its base. Took less than 1/8 of a turn and it moved quite freely. And, I think they even sent me a new complete seacock.
I agree that they like to be exercised, but they can certainly be too tight as well. I took the hose off and turned it just a bit and thing were fine.
