French term or phrase: oreille de la plaque de raidissement
A small technical section at the end of an otherwise non-technical document:

Payload dropping system for a military aircraft:

"La platforme est extrait de l'avion a travers le trappe de chargement par la methode d'arrachement a l'aide du parachute extracteur qui est mis en action au moment de pression du bouton de largage; dans ce cas, on voit fonctionner le verrou DSP, auquel est fixe l'emballage du VPS a l'aide de l'oreille de la plaque de raidissement."

"the ??? of the stiffening plate ??"
