It look like its  just the  top part of a fuse as its very thin, the gain would  be located in the container next to the sheer pin connected back to the fuse via a drop lead ( copper wire link cable)  the fuse would trigger the gain the gain would sever the pin and the container open up ,at least that's how it appears.

Yeah,here brotherman. Yes that is the basic release one for this particular container. Thanks for showing it.  Note that there is no particular number on the fuze boss.
