English term or phrase: compression lock
Another lock. There is a differentiation between push lock and compression lock.

Compression lock: Suitable for applications that require the lock to achieve a light compression force, for example where a seal has to be made.

Pushlock: Pushlocks work on a push-to-lock/key-to-unlock principle and are generally intended for use on double sliding doors or other applications where the lock is required to prevent lateral movement. The outer body of the lock is secured to the inside of a door usually by screws through the outer flange, ‘flange fixing’, or occasionally using a nut tightened onto the threaded lock body, ‘nut fixing’. Pushing on the lock ‘head’ causes the central barrel with the locking pin at the rear to lock in a protruding position, preventing lateral movement of the door. A turn of the key allows the spring-loaded barrel and locking pin to ‘pop out’ to the unlocked position.

Pushlock wäre Druckzylinderschloss.

Bei LEO habe ich etwas ähnliches gefunden, wenn man die fett geschriebenen Wörter betrachtet.
Ich schlage in deinem Fall "Druckverschluß" vor.
