Tech/Engineering / aluminum profiles
French term or phrase: point d'accroche
Context is a specification manual for suppliers of unfinished, lacquered and anodized aluminum extrusions. I would say the "point d'accroche" is a point on a profile where you secure it or hold it down so that it can be lacquered--"laquague vertical".

"Nous possédons également une bibliothèque de "plans de détails" de ses profilés et qui présente également de manière plus précise, les indications qui vous intéressent (faces vues, visibles, point d'accroche, prise de pince, …)"

anchor point
Explanation:
I almost always use "anchor point"

But you could also say...

fixation point (esp. BrE)
attachment point
attach point

or suspension point (if hanging)

Hope this helps,
