    Yes, I display mine devoid of the rods.

    I can tell you what the grooves were for, care of the wartime US Intel book:

    There are two parallel grooves on the underside of the pressure plate which are designed to accept a metal safety fork that will bridge the outer edge of the mine and support the pressure plate until such time as the mine is laid. The two prongs are then withdrawn through the two grooves arming the mine. This fork is not supplied with the mine but is improvised by units.

    Cheers, Ade.
