Grading comment
The answer not only fits the context but also helps [a non-mathematician] to distinguish the translation of Stütztelle from Stützpunkt in related contexts.
(You've probably seen my reponse in Flefo; also the explanation by Judy Ann Schön.)
Thanks again, Tom

Explanation:
Fulcrum is too "mechanical"

grid points, or, if the axes have been mentioned, x-values, is what is
