go / no-go jig
Explanation:
You can replace the word 'jig' by other similar words, like gauge, for example, but in my exp., many things are called jigs when they are only in fact special tools, and not an actually jig as such (as we might think of for assembly, for example)

\'gauge\' certainly gets more Googles, and the spelling variant Go/NoGo seems common too. I guess my idea of \'jig\' was just based on informal workshop usage!

So, Asker, \'...gauge\' is my final suggestion....
