I agree with you that the unlocking mechanism is only driven from the left side, but there is also a latch on the right that appears to be mechanically linked to the left pin.

If this doesn't work, if you stuff things down the front of your pants this will take care of you until you pass the customs check-point, but if you want to be really sneaky, stuff it in your anal orifice and hope there are no perverts at customs.
