English term or phrase: hocked part
Aus der Montageanleitung einer Klimaanlage
Leider habe ich nicht mehr Kontext, der Begriff steht ganz alleine unter der Unterüberschrift "Cutting a hole and mounting installation plate"
Der Begriff steht in einer Skizze des Installation Plates

Explanation:
This is ONLY a guess, but Merriam Webster gives ONE definition of hock as:

2 : a small cut of meat from a front or hind leg just above the foot <ham hocks>

From this, I might derive that the part is somehow cut into shape.

As I said, just a guess.
