Above and below the relay, more or less in line with the left side of the relay, I see two dark-color, large-head bolt heads. Most likely those are the two mounting bolts, positioned to keep the EVSE mounted even when the e-hose is pulled enough to pull entirely out of the EVSE.
Notice that the blue Control Pilot wire is much shorter than the "big three" wires in the e-hose. Thus, the loss of the CP connection will cause the relay to open, leaving the "yanked" e-hose without any (dangerous) power.
After the e-hose is "yanked" out:
The AV rep told me that restoring (or replacing?) the special "plug" that holds the e-hose cord as it exits the box - requires a service call (or return).
The pilot wire is NOT the safety mechanism, the safety is built into the HV lines which all have spade ends that unplug under strain rendering them disconnected. No dangerous electricity would be exposed since there would be unplugged wires, besides, even if every wire connector were torn off it would shut the unit down REGARDLESS because that is and "unplug". In addition it's almost impossible to get hurt form one since the GFI will trip before anything like that will occur. You could take a all metal axe and stand in a pool of water and chop the cord while charging and nothing is going to happen to you.
