It would be easier and equally save not to protect the key at all.
However, I know that sometimes stupid security policies demands

If you want to give the passphrase on the command line you need to pass
it hex encoded:
PRESET_PASSPHRASE 56E06E3E911D2E485189CAF087ED5DCF802FB4D8 -1 4D79506872617365
However, gpg-preset-passphrase should have done the hex encoding for you.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
