Explanation:
"Hand hole": Registro manual. (Apertura para penetrar la mano).
"Man hole" : Agujero-hombre, boca de registro.
No necesariamente se refiere a tapas de alcantarillas, que se denominan así también, pueden ser registros en tanques, camiones cisterna, depósitos, compartimientos de maquinarias industriales, como lavadoras de botellas, etc.
Luck!
