(a) Pulling the lever allowed the seat to slide smoothly back.
(b) Pulling the lever detached the seat from the floor, causing the seat to fall over.
You guessed it! The seat fell over. Pulling the lever allows one to quickly detach the seat to make room for cargo. Perhaps a little too quickly!
Most people expect to find a lever near the front of a car seat which allows the seat to slide forward or backward. Most people wouldn't expect a lever near the front of the seat to detach the seat from the floor. In fact, it could be quite dangerous to detach the seat while sitting in it!
