German term or phrase: Türverschlüsse etc
Türverschlüsse stark gehend - laut einrastend
This is how someone describes the locks on the doors of their vehicle. Any ideas what they might be trying to say?

English translation:stiff, makes a noise when enganging
Explanation:
Well, I think 'stark gehend' means that it requires some effort when trying to engage or disengage it, and I think 'stiff' would cover this in English.
Turning to 'laut einrastend', I think this means that it makes a noise when engaging, and I can't come up with anything shorter than that in English.
