Springs for the cube jettison mechanism

A few days ago we recieved the springs for the cube jettison mechanism. These were provided by Febrotec Federn. The springs enable the seperation of the cube after the deployment of our drag sail. This is necessary to avoid damage to the rocket recovery parachute. The springs will be triggered by cutting a holding string with pyrotechnical cutters. This is how the assemby looks like:
