Is it for remotely dumping something like the carpets on a carpet laying funny or the armoured fuel trailer on a crocodile... :dunno:

 

 

ISTR (but I could be wrong) that the quick release mechanism for a Crocodile trailer was explosive in nature to ENSURE the trailer was ejected before burning ammunition passed into the tank.

Is it the source of inspiration that gave Ian Fleming the idea of Bond's ejector seat Aston?

My mother always said I was a whimsical child.

 

 

Probably not.

Sounds about right doesn't it... although i would suspect that all that'd be left of the trailer it it went up would be the fexible hose coupling dangling like the remains of a popped balloon :shake:

 

 

Nope

The plunger is shown fully extended, when it is depressed into the block it becomes latched & is held down halfway in. When the side lever is pressed laterally the plunger is released up with significant force.
