French term or phrase:désincarcération
In a report on car assembly from kits (CKD) « pièces CKD, local de désincarcération».
All I can find is information about gaining access to vehicle occpants in an emergency (accident) - cutting the roof off, etc. This may be right in my context, but seems a bit odd in a car factory.
And any idea what the correct (UK) English term is for this?

Explanation: Personally, I think Oddie is right but I figured I'd translate "pinces de désincarcération" for you in case it was what you needed (that's what they're called in Canada, by the way, and I think its the same in the UK).
