English term or phrase:caging
Unidade de potência hidráulica / freios hidráulicos.
Estou procurando uma palavra mais adequada para traduzir "caging" com o sentido de restrição de movimento na frase "Clamps are shipped in their retracted position and are held in that position by the retraction-***caging fork***."
- The adjective "caging" from caging fork is used to describe the restriction of movement. In our rail clamp devices, sometimes they need to be put into a certain holding position. The caging fork is used to lock the device into that holding position. If the caging fork is removed, the device can then return to it's original position.
