Toggle clamp


Explanation:
This is merely a guess, but if you visit the website of a company known as AMF at http://www.amf.de, they offer an English version of their site, which advertises "Schnellspanner" among many other types of clamping devices. They translate the term as toggle clamp. If nothing else, it might help you get a sense of what "Schnellspanner" look like.

Shimano uses "Quick Release" without skewer or fastener


Explanation:
I translate regularly for Shimano Europe and have lots of their literature in English and German so it is easy to provide their translations if that would be a help.
