With how little damage claw does I'm pretty sure on when selected is fine.

Novice friendly defaults:

Kerosene - on when selected
Hydrogen - press to activate
Chute vent - press to activate
Impact bumpers - on when selected
Drogue chute - on when selected
Moonshine - press to activate
Phoenix claw - ?
Tar barrel - press to activate

Would have to be changeable though because some people would hate that setup.

Something I've been thinking of would be to add a separate window for toolbar customization, where you can pick each item of how you want them to operate. When adding some items to activate upon pressing (lets say you add Kerosene to press for activation), it will give you a different image of the piloting tool when ingame:
(Upon holding the item and then pressing it, the "Lock" will switch image to "Unlocked", which will indicate that the item is currently active. This is not an accurate representation, but approximate).
