English term or phrase:quilter key
Corporal - we're going to need the **quilter key**.
It’s a tool designed to unlock the cap which gives us access to the fuse
and if it works we can all go home for tea.
Reference information: “I’m using the quilter key.” He had pulled it out of his breast pocket. It was cold and he had to rub it warm. He began to remove the locking ring. It moved easily and he told Hardy. “They’re changing guard at Buckingham Palace,” Kip whistled. He pulled off the locking ring and the locating ring and let them sink into the water. He could feel them roll slowly at his feet. It would all take another four minutes. http://www.scribd.com/doc/8896439/Michael-Ondaatje-The-Engli...
