It is also crucial to at least half-cock the hammer before removing the lockplate. We've all seen those nasty chips at the bottom edge, which are caused by forcing an over-relaxed mainspring past the lip of the cutout. Another common chip is the one made be the IDIOT who tries to remove the hinge-pin while the receiver is still in the wood!! The lockplate chip is ignorance - the pin chip is just plain stupidity.
