German term or phrase: Relaissockel mit Doppelstock
The German is on a list of term relating to locomotives, and the translation "Base with two high reliable cage clamp" is given, which I am puzzled by and would be interested in confirming/understanding.

Presumably 'two high' should be 'two-high' and 'reliable cage clamp' is the terminal implementation.

'Relay base' is also used (maybe this reflects UK usage). In US usage, a base is something at the bottom of a component (e.g a tube base) and a socket is something that receives a component (such as the pins of a tube base).

Notes to answerer
Asker: Ah! I was wondering about that, and puzzled about numerous sockel that had apparently been mistranslated into sockets. Now I understand!
