English term or phrase: leg pigs
Contexto:

The Extendo variable position safety ***leg pigs*** are not in their holster when the Extendo is being moved.

Make sure both lockout pins are in their holster behind the main operator station.


I guess this is just a typo for "pins" but just to make sure since I cannot reach the client...

Description of Issue

xxx has learned of an incident in which a prefeeder operator recently tried to grab the Extendo safety leg lockout pin while it was retracting causing a minor injury.
The **Extendo safety legs contain an air-operated pin that positions the lockout pin through the safety leg.** The lockout pin has a small-diameter hole bored through it to allow an individual lock or a gang lock to be installed to comply with some customers’ safety policies. The lockout pin retracts through the leg during normal operation to allow the Extendo to raise/lower into position. A representative picture is shown below (your machine may look different due to generational design changes).

Note to reference poster
Asker: I did. as I said, I know what pins are, but in this particular sentence it said "leg pigs" but googling "pigs" or even "leg pigs" or even from "leg pigs" engineering to "leg pigs" part machine, techinical glossary, etc.... show no results other than "porcino" related things. I even tried looking the term in the the "Diccionario politécnico de lingüística español-inglés" by F.Beigbeder Atienza
