German term or phrase: Riegelzapfen
I am working on correspondence concerning patents.
One of the items mentioned (not much context) is a Riegelzapfen.
Would "interlocking device" be adequate to translate the Riegelzapfen?
Thanks.

English translation:mortise and tenon joint
Explanation:
This is only a guess, but since you are talking about Fussboden, this might be close.

The first link shows Riegelzapfen near the bottom. This is the joint mentioned in my answer.

The second link is an English treatise on doing some work with it.

Good luck.

Thanks a lot; however, I am not quite satisfied - so I will dig some on the Internet.
There is a Japanese wood working technique that apparently utilizes this Riegelzapfen item.
Again, thanks.
