The valve operating lever is spring loaded. You must lift against the
spring and then rotate the handle to open the valve. I suppose it's
possible in some sort of accident situation to accomplish this but I
suspect by that time you'd have a whole lot else on your mind.
I have had mine installed in my urS6 for several years now. I'm very glad
I put it in.
