Interesting trick..

But doesn't the boot just open mechanically with the key?

My boot does, no need for all this trouble. Iv take my PSE pump out completely, and manage to lock and unlock the boot normally..

What would be the point of this?

Also extremely dangerous, connecting a basically unlimited source of current to your electrical system without any overcurent protection. Can you say "Burnt wiring harness"?
