You're fine.

I've done this a few time. And last weekend put 200 rounds through it.

Nothing to worry about. Unless you forced it in a way that might actually damage something. But, I've done it before and I know it didn't hurt mine.

Edited to add:

The only two things that would be rubbing against each other are the trigger bar and the connector. So, unless your actions resulted in any disfiguring of the connector, you're good to go.

No problem.

Now that you've field stripped it, you gotta work up the courage to break it completely apart.

Get a Glock Armorers Tool - $8 shipped.

I was nervous my first time, but now I can do it in my sleep.

Difference in the two manuals? I didn't look, b/c I've just been using the latest version.

Keep in mind that I have no official certification from Glock. YET

The proper way to take down a Glock is to:
1. Drop the mag.
2. Rack the slide and see if there is a cartridge in the chamber.
3. With the slide forward, and the gun empty, pull the trigger.
4. Slightly pull back on the slide, then actuate the slide lock bar.
5. Move the slide forward and off of the frame.
6. Remove the guide rod.
7. Take out the barrel.

This is the basic field strip.

But to answer your question, no it will not compromise the safeties.

At most, the only thing that could have been damaged was the slide lock bar. So next time you have your Glock apart just look at it to make sure it is still straight. I don't believe that a little force is going to break it, but even if it did bend it some it is a really cheap part to replace ($4) and even easier to install.
