German term or phrase: Stellriegel
In a patent relating to a hand tool: "Staubabsaugung, dadurch gekennzeichnet, dass auf dem Aussenteil am axialen Übergang zum Innenteil des Saugrohres ein axial fester, begrenzt umfänglich versetzbarer Stellring angeordnet ist, welcher den drehrastbaren Stellriegel umfänglich beidseitig formschlüßig umgreifbar ausgebildet ist."

Thanks very much!

adjusting bolt
Explanation:
my dictionary gives
Riegel= bolt (blocking mechanism)
stellen = adjust

That might help a little
I got lost halfway in the sentence, so I can't really figure out if it fits into your context
