I thought that, too, but there'd be no "popping back in place" and immediately fly it again with that rounded out D gear D hole... Still, even if he meant the C gear, how does the C gear "pop out", yet immediately be flyable again? If his TT is that short and/or the boom pulled so far out that it can disengage from the C gear, then he's got much bigger problems than "popping it back in place".
