German term or phrase: Krallen einschwenken
from the instruction on how to mount a terminal:


"Krallen lösen, bis sie ins Gehäuse einschwenken"
Krallen seem to be hitches, i suppose, but not sure.

But the verb is totally not clear in this context:
"Loose the hitches until they are fastened into the housing"??
