socket weld contraction rings

The term 'anhalsen' seems to be used in hunting jargon:

anhalsen: Dem Hund die Halsung anlegen.

Halsung: Das Halsband des Jagdhundes

When I looked at the pictures of the socket weld contraction rings here and read how they're used, I saw a similarity between these rings and the 'Halsband des Jagdhundes'.

Maybe this is it?

Would correspond to "Aushalsungen" instead of "Anhalsungen".
Numerous Google hits for both Aushalsung and T-drill.

I you click on the last link, you will see only an abstract in English like "Using recent information about failures in nuclear plants, the author has derived the following estimates of the probability of failure events in prime piping systems of carbon and low-alloy steel: severance prior to service:" and you have to buy the book for reading more.
