Retractable Fifth Wheel For Tight Parking Spots

Esslam Zahra from Egypt put a fifth wheel, mounted perpendicular to the other four, on the back of his car. The wheel can be raised or lowered, depending on if he is parking or driving. The purpose is so that he can get in and out of the very tightest parking spaces.

I am wondering if the fifth wheel locks into the transmission or if it has its own separate motor?
