Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial
English term or phrase: sideways displacement
The context is
"The relief valve knob may be locked by using a locking ring with a sideways displacement."
What does "sideways displacement" mean in this case?
Is the knob placed at horizontal direction?

Could someone explain in another word please?
Thank you in advance.

From your text, it apeears that it is the locking ring that is moved horizontally. It probably clicks into position over the knob and prevents the knob from being operated.
