Spanish term or phrase: cabeza gota sebo
This refers to a train door lock. The cabeza I assume is a part and the gota sebo refers to a treatment, this is all I have.

mushroom head

I also used the Eurodicautom. Mushroom head is the translation I would choose for a train door lock because it describes the shape of the part you are talking about.
