Swedish term or phrase: Hållare av autoklaverbar plast som kan vikäs at siden.
Pertaining to an advert for a root canal drill

"Hållare av autoklaverbar plast som kan vikäs at siden".

Again difficult to read in hard copy - but I think it should be:
"Removable holder made of autoclave safe plastic".
Confirmation or dispute welcome.

TIA

Explanation:
Your proposal seem very likely, but 'vika åt sidan' must not mean removable, since the holder will still be fixed to the thing (whatever it is), literally it means "which can be turned aside", but not very good in English!
