While I don't have a TR4, I do have a TR3, and the hand brake is called a
"fly off" brake in the owners manual.  I, too, struggled with the release
procedure when I first set the brake on mine.  The secret is that the
button on the handle is there only to set the brake, not release it.  To
release the brake, just pull up (thumb off of the button!!) and then let
go.  I know it's counter-intuitive, but it's sooo British.
