ratchets; ratchet locks
Explanation:
(...) sloten van dozen, blokkeerpallen, scharnieren enz.
>>
(...) box locks, ratchets, hinges, etc.

See, for instance, the link I already provided in my reference comment:

In the first sink, keeping the instrument totally immersed, with an appropriately-sized autoclavable soft nylon brush, apply validated cleaning solution to all surfaces until all soil has been removed. Pay particular attention to serrations, teeth, ratchets, box locks and hinges, always brushing away from the body and avoiding splashing.

After cleaning, visually inspect all surfaces, ratchets, box locks, holes, channels and lumens for complete removal of soil and fluids. If ANY soil or fluid is still visible, return the instrument for repeat decontamination.

Visually inspect and check: all instruments for damage and wear; cutting edges are free of nicks and present a continuous edge; jaws and teeth align correctly; all articulated instruments have a smooth movement without excess play; locking mechanisms (such as ratchets) fasten securely and close easily; long, slender instruments are not distorted; any component parts fit and assemble correctly with mating components.

Close instruments with a ratchet lock in the first ratchet position before sterilization to avoid temperature-induced stress cracks in the box locks.

agree  Kitty Brussaard: Indeed, 'ratchet' or 'ratchet lock' seem to be the right terms here (see also my reference comment below). / OK, consider it done :-)
