Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / Arborism/Locking Pin Mech
English term or phrase: screw stop
"Locate Spring-loaded locking axle or screw atop the device.
Push and twist locking axle or screw mechanism to release its grip."

Estou a presumir que "atop" deve ser "stop".

Como traduziam a expressão?

Obrigada desde já!

Você corrigiu o typo trocando o atop pelo stop mas acho que é sttoper:

Explanation:
Talvez a frase esteja corretíssima:

Atop
advérbio
no cume;
no cimo
https://www.infopedia.pt/dicionarios/ingles-portugues/atop

"Localize.... ou aparafuse na parte superior do dispositivo"

Como lhe disse na discussão, entendo "screw" como verbo.

"Locate Spring-loaded locking axle or screw atop / on top of the device".
Posso estar enganada, mas é assim que interpreto a frase.

parafuso na parte superior do (dispositivo / aparelho etc.)


Explanation:
Penso que o correto é "atop" mesmo.

Entendo que neste contexto, "screw" é um substantivo, não verbo. "Atop" só pode ser uma preposição (equivalente a "sobre", "em cima de", "na parte superior de"), pois a palavra seguinte é outro substantivo.

Assim entendi: Localize o eixo (...) ou o parafuso na parte superior do dispositivo / aparelho.
