French term or phrase: réservation
le tube est solidarisé au support 2 qui porte des réservations appropriés, par un couvercle de fermeture 15…

I have my reservations about this!

fittings
Explanation:
"... the tube is joined integrally to [or: "forms an integral unit with"] the support (2), which is provided with appropriate fittings, by means of a closure cap (15)..."

As you'll gather, the commas are necessary to a clear understanding of who is doing what to which.

Alternatively, if the rest of the sentence allows it, you could switch the order: "... the tube is integrally joined, by means of a closure cap (15), to the support (2), which is provided with appropriate fittings..."

Note: The somewhat redundant "couvercle de fermeture" (which could also be rendered as "secure lid") usually refers to a cover that performs a sealing function, or to a lid that is threaded for a secure fit. Your context should point you in the right direction!

HTH,
HC

Bis, bis, bis! Another miraculous triumph for you! I can now cancel my reservations (t'would be fitting). Many thanks!

P.S. Thanks are also extended to all who took the time to respond to my request.
