German term or phrase:Zulocker-Einstellung
Schere speziell für den organischen Haarschnitt • Effilierschere mit 32 Zähnen, mikrofeinverzahnt in Verbindung mit DGT-Schliff • Griff-Schneidenverhältnis für kürzere ergonomische Bewegungen optimieren extrem weichen Gang • Turn-Stop-Schraubensystem für individuelles Einstellen, Verhinderung ***»Zulocker-Einstellung***« • Vollstahlschere, Schneiden aus höchstgehärtetem Kugellagerstahl, höchste Ergonomie • Abschraubbarer Fingerhaken"
From a hairdressing brochure. This is describing the features of a certain pair of scissors. I have absolutely no idea was is meant by "Zulocker-Einstellung". TIA for any light you can shed on this obscure expression.
I don't really feel I can give you maximum points, as most of the help came from Lori! But I can't give her points on this occasion, so I'll give you a couple for agreeing with her. :-) Thanks for the response anyway. 2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
I thank you for your answer, Stephen, but it's not very clear. Could you please elucidate a little more? For instance, how does this tie in with the immediately preceding "Verhinderung"?
