Being ignorant of this matter, I’m not sure how a bottom-operated coupler actually worked.  In a top-operated coupler, gravity kept the pin in place, and one had to overcome friction to pull it.  With a bottom-operated coupler, how was the pin retained?  Obviously, gravity would help overcome any friction in pulling that pin.
The locking pin is the same, it's just pushed up from the bottom.
