German term or phrase: Achsbolzen
This is in a patent for a metal leg brace that helps straighten knock knees or bow legs over time.

In die Schäkel a und b werden die Schienenenden c und f eingehängt und durch je einen Achsbolzen g gesichert.

I've been guessing something like "shaft pin," but any other ideas are very appreciated--especially if you have citations from a printed source.

pivot (pin, stud, bolt)
Explanation:
Difficult question without a drawing. If this "Achse" means that it supports something turning, I would use "pivot (pin - if the Bolzen is moveable, stud, if fixed at one side, bolt, if threaded).

Inventors are not only with technologies inventive ;-)

\"Achs-\" in German always means relation to something revolving or turning, even if the part itself does not revolve or turn (e.g. \"Achsschenkelbolzen\" - kingpin, which does not turn itself)

If the part itself does not turn, just pin, stud or bolt may be enough.
