German term or phrase:Kipphilfe
Wasn't quite sure if this should be categorised mechanical or electronic, hope you agree!
This is from the user manual for a laptop in the section describing how to remove the battery:
► Drehen Sie das Notebook um und legen Sie es auf eine stabile, ebene und saubere Unterlage.
► Klappen Sie ggf. die **Kipphilfe** des Akkus ein.
► Heben Sie den Akku an den hinteren Ecken an
I just found a diagram of the 'Kipphilfe' that I missed before. This is, in fact, a kind of rectangular "hoop" that runs the width of the battery (which is the same width as the laptop) and is about two inches in the other direction. This folds out to form a kind of stand that tilts the laptop up at an angle. I guess 'tilting device' should fit, unless you can think of a better term?

battery release latch
Explanation: I think 'einklappen' makes sense according to this description:
Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position. ... P1 Phillips-head screw that secures the optical drive to the bottom of the notebook. ...
