Can a grenade detonate without pulling the pin?
So…as long as you’re holding onto the grenade, or the thing you set on top of the grenade is still there, the grenade won’t detonate. Not as long as you hold that lever (the “spoon”). The release of that triggers the grenade, not the removal of pin or clip.
