Peeled the jack body open like a tuna can.

Jack-knifed the trailer and hooked up a chain + chain binder to the hitch.

Here is the view from above. Notice the trailer angle. I will drive the truck ahead and straighten out, and it will pull on the bottom of the jack.

The view from the rear view camera. It wasn't very useful.

Straighten out the truck and out pulls real hard.

By far I like the first picture the most. Glad you had no more damage than you did.
