"Because he's holding a thermal detonator!"
C-3PO speaks in fear of the threat of a thermal detonator[src]

Thermal detonators were palm-sized, spherical devices that were used as extremely deadly explosive weapons.[3] In addition to being surprisingly powerful for their size, they could only be turned off by whoever turned them on.[6] And they would go off only when they were activated, therefore they were very resistant and secure when carrying them.[7]

The Duros bounty hunter Cad Bane carried thermal detonators, and often used them during assignments.[4] During the Galactic Civil War, Princess Leia Organa, disguised as a bounty hunter, threatened the crime lord Jabba the Hutt with a detonator in order to negotiate a deal.[3]
