the magnets so as to enable the "thumb-to-thumb"
engagement that the delayed uncoupling feature

the bottom of the box, so as to reduce the
vertical slop in the coupler. It also reduces the
contact between the underside of the shank, and
the bottom of the box, thereby reducing the
resistance to lateral movement enough to be
