|German term or phrase: Absperrhahn schliessen|
|Trennen Sie unter Restdruck mitdrehende Geräte vor jeder Transportfahrt vom Kr.II-Druckstecker oder sichern Sie solche Geräte durch schließen eines druckfesten, geräteseitigen Absperrhahns.|
My attempt thus far:
Before transporting, separate equipment still turning as a result of residual pressure from the Cr. II pressure connector or secure such equipment by X a pressure-resistant cutoff valve.
My question is in regard to the "schliessen" bit. Am I actually closing (shutting, etc.) the cuttoff valve here or am I attaching it and the "an" from "anschliessen" is missing at the end of the sentence? The Absperrhahn was never mentioned before, which is what makes me wonder here...
Prior to each transport, separate from the CR pressure plug connector any equipment still idling under residual pressure or secure such equipment by closing an attached, pressure-resistant cutoff valve.
"closing" and "attached" takes care of both possibilities. Besides, "attached" also covers "geräteseitig"

|Thank you very much to all of you. I have "cutoff valve" in the carmaker's wordlist so I am pretty much obligated to use it, but I really appreciate everyone's help with the "schliessen" bit.|
Thank you for the beautifully worded sentence, Klaus, I have used it in the manual.
I will leave it up to you want to enter it in the glossary or not because as Robert and Andy correctly pointed out there are several acceptable alternatives for "Absperrhahn". Thanks again,
