Any tricks to replacing door hinge pins?

I understand that having one door hinge pin without a nut is probably not a huge deal, but I already bought replacement hinge pins and before I smack the hell out of the busted one to get it out...are there any tricks to ease the process for me and the door?

There is no problem having the nuts off of the doors. I have had my nuts off since April, the only reason I would put them on and off is for theft protection. When the doors are shut lock them, if they are locked no one can steal them.
