English term or phrase: rod sloop tailgate
description d'un accident du travail sur un forage :
Whilst getting ready to move the Rod sloop to the new Drilling platform,3 helpers were in the process of closing the Rod sloop tailgate, when one of the helpers had his right middle finger pinched against the Rod sloop frame and the tailgate.

tailgate est le terme pour "hayon" dans l'automobile, et j'ai une illustration qui montre bien une sorte de gros couvercle métallique, mais je ne sais pas comment l'appeler; "rod" c'est la "tige", mais sloop je ne sais pas

Notes to answerer
Asker: ok pour sloop rod mais ça ne va pas pour "tailgate", qui dans le gdt correspond à une chemin, une "voie"; ici c'est un couvercle métallique (il y a une photo mais c'est un gros plan, on ne voit pas de quoi c'est le couvercle) je penche pour "couvercle" ou "capot"
