Glad no one was injured.

POOR design that should have been thought of before any prints were even drawn up.  If the design is such that removing a bottle w/psi and a faulty valve creates a rocket I am somewhat surprised no one has mentioned or attempted to address it. 

Another  bottle valve WILL become stuck open.  As little as a small vent hole or even a dowty washer would make this a safer design.

 Any chance owner could fit in a dowty and still depress the pin?

Hopefully FX is currently addressing this issue.
