French term or phrase: axe tendeur
Un bulletin de livraison des rideaux fixes pour un camion remorque. Il n'y a pas beaucoup de contexte. La phrase entière: "sangle soudée axe tendeur".
Je crois que "sangle" est "strap" or "belt" or even "rope".

In the absence of further context, this is really too telegraphic to suggest anything with real confidence.

Might it be a "tensioning pin/roller/shaft", or reference to the centreline of a tensioning system??

Your "complete" expression "sangle soudée axe tendeur" is even more of a mystery since it is not at all obvious how the two parts fit together : "strap welded to tensioning roller", "welded strap and tensioning roller", "strap welded (to the sidecurtain fabric) in line with tensioner" etc?????.

Notes to answerer
Asker: This is the trouble with such lists: they are nearly always agrammatical. I think that "sangle soudée axe tendeur" is most probably "sangle soudée _à l'_axe tendeur", but I am no expert in the field. The previous item is "2 sangles soudées verticales", if it is of any help.

Asker: Do you mind if I don't select this answer? I mean, it wasn't your fault that the text was so cryptic, but there isn't much to add to glossary... Thanks for support, anyway.
