Type of Explosive: TNT

Trigger Method:
Pressure activated. The lid of the box rests on the wings of the striker retaining pin, with a slot in the box lid to accommodate the striker shaft. When sufficient pressure is applied to the lid, it forces the winged retaining pin out of the spring-loaded striker, releasing it onto the stab-sensitive detonator assembly.

Structure and Components:
The TNT charge is a block wrapped in waxed paper and positioned at the hinged end of the box. The fuze, fitted with a stab-sensitive detonator assembly, is screwed into the TNT block and protrudes through a hole in the front of the box. The case material is wood, fixed with small steel pins. The fuze is normally made from steel.
