Railroad expression for uncoupling rail cars from one another. To lift or "pull" the actual pin used to lock the coupler knuckle of one rail car to another. This is done by pulling on a long round "bar" connected to the actual "pin" and can be done in the comparative safety of the area outside the rail cars being uncoupled. Early railroaders had to do this while in between the two cars being uncoupled.

The Australian Surf Lifesaving movement used to rescue people by donning a belt attached to a line. The beltman would swim out to the person they were rescuing while the team on the beach would feed the Line out as they swam.
The Belt had a Pin at the front that could be pulled to quickly release the Belt from the Beltman. If the Beltman was in difficulties they'd 'pull the pin' to get free.
It's a common term used by Australian Surf Life Savers to describe a decision to get out of a bad situation.
