Default Translation request on headrest

When I run the inscription on the headrest through GOOGLE I get something about blast charge to separate canopy and don't do something while testing.
Anyone give me an exact translation? TIA

here is what it means:

Caution!
Canopy is jettisoned by explosive charge.
Don't touch the jettison lever. Before testing, secure the firing pin.



My dictionaries show 2 translations for "Schlagbolzen": "firing pin" and "percuteur".

Well I found a few cutaways-no pictures that could help...BUT..very interesting discussion here on jettisoning FW 190 canopy with a diagram. 20mm blank cartridge! Makes sense. Something easily in stock. FWIW. Evidently placed between part labeled #11 and #16.
