Not adopted by the Army this Bomb eventually found it's way to the Home Guard, with some sad stories of accidents, The first pin pulled would remove the covers ,exposing the sticky ball, the second pin would arm the device requiring only that the bomb be let go, releasing the clip on the handle , this fired the fuze which would leave only seconds for the soldier to retire, after planting the bomb on it's target.
