    Yeah, I think it's pretty reasonable to ask the instructor to get in the water for a dive before hand.

    Less about skills, more about checking kit etc.

    No, most of them are automatic so will fire when submerged in water. Great for a lifejacket... not so good for your dsmb.

    As mentioned, Kent Tooling sell the appropriate mechanism for a few quid.
