I think you could be right there. It's been a long, long time since I had the NSA Ready Brake system but, if I'm not mistaken, that "black" slider has a slot in it, that the 5/8" pin goes through. And, that black slider moves back and forth which, actuates the top lever, which in tern, pulls on the cable. If that black slider is locked into position, such as we see in the picture, it can't slide and, the brakes in the toad won't work. At least that's kinda what I remember.
