French term or phrase: mobile sur son axe
Here is the whole sentence, in a description of table tennis tables:

Filet réglable en hauteur et mobile sur son axe pour éviter toutes blessures en cas de choc.

I have seen oodles of descriptions that use "pivoting net", but I'm not sure if this is it. It sounds right to me - like the net flips down if players smash into it so they don't get hurt. But I am not 100% sure and would feel better if any experts out there could confirm this.
