German term or phrase: help with the sentence in brackets
This is the context from an industrial shelf system patent:
Bei einer in den Fig. 3 bis 5 dargestellten weiteren Ausführungsform ist der jeweilige Umbug 5 mit Schlitzen 7 versehen. Die Abbiegungen 11 weisen bei dieser Ausführungsform die Form eines zungenförmigen Widerhakens 8 auf. Dabei erstrekken sich in der Montageposition die Widerhaken 8 durch die Schlitze 7 hindurch und werden nach ihrer Einführung um 90° umgebogen. Die Fig. 4 zeigt den in den Schlitz eingeführten Widerhaken 8, während in der Fig. 5 der Widerhaken in der umgebogenen Position dargestellt ist. [Durch diese Anordnung wird eine stabile Verbindung erreicht: das aus der aufgenommenen Nutzlast resultierende Moment wird sicher beherrscht, da an der Verbindungsstelle im Zusammenwirken mit dem Widerhaken 8 ein Kräftepaar entsteht.]
The first part is clear; the sentence that I put in brackets is what I'm asking for suggestions on, this is what I came up with: A stable connection is produced from this configuration: the coupling resulting from the bearing of the load is made secure, since a reinforcement arises at the connection point in conjunction with the hook 8. Is there anybody more technically- minded out there who can polish this sentence up for me?
Danke im Voraus

Explanation:
"This configuration produces a stable joint: The moment resulting from the applied useful load is reliably accommodated, because the hook 8 forms one half of a force pair at the connection point."

Kräftepaar = force pair (see muweb.millersv.edu/~jdooley/macro/ derive/elas2/strsdef/strsdef.htm and others)

\"force couple\" is also used (people.cornell.edu/pages/jo24/cuhk/ courseNotes/moment/moment.html), and gets more hits.
