Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Manual: Low Voltage Live Working Conditions
French term or phrase: fixation mécanique
This comes from a section avoid how to avoid short circuits when carrying out repairs.

"Suppression de la fixation d’une pièce conductrice:

Avant de supprimer la fixation mécanique d’une pièce conductrice, l’opérateur doit assurer le maintien de cette dernière. Après suppression de cette fixation
mécanique, il doit:
- soit isoler la pièce conductrice,
- soit maîtriser son mouvement, pour éviter de provoquer un court-circuit."

So far, I've come up with "mechanical bond" or "bonding strap".
