When I ran across them, I was shocked not only at their existence, but at their design and execution (mount/holder even). It's the little things like this that made Volvo the high water mark of car safety.

I always keep one of those in my tool bag for visits to the scrap yard. It is not unusual to find those mechanical SIPs air bag triggers left exposed serving as a land mine just waiting for the unwary.
