German term or phrase: Schlitzverschlüssen
This is a test translation so I cannot tell you my own translation suggestions. There are four terms in the German text that are difficult for me; each one will be a separate KudoZ question. Here is the context, there ain't no more:

"Bestimmung und Gebrauch

Die Sicherheitszuhaltung stellt sicher, dass eine bewegliche Schutzeinrichtung im Zusammenarbeit mit dem steuerungstechnischen Teil der Maschine nicht geöffnet werden kann, bis gefahrbringende Zustände beendet sind. Die Sicherheitszuhaltung darf nicht als Anschlag benutzt werden. Die Gebrauchslage ist beliebig. Sie sollte jedoch so gewählt werden, dass kein grober Schmutz in die benutzten Öffnungen eindringen kann. Nicht benutzte Betätigeröffnungen sind mit Schlitzverschlüssen zu verschließen. Die Sicherheitszuhaltung besitzt eine fest eingestellte Rastung von 30 N."

slot covers?
Explanation:
Not many URL's on this term that don't refer to cameras. This one shows a
very simple arrangement :

The question is then, what kind of an actuator could operate through a slot ?

Didn't they give at least a general context?

Grading comment
Sorry to be so late with the grading, but I had to wait for the customer's decision. He was quite happy with the following translation:

-

" Purpose and use

The safety interlock switch ensures that any moveable protective guard device used in conjunction with the technical control components of the machine cannot be opened until dangerous operational conditions have ceased. The safety interlock switch may not be used as limit stop. The installation position is optional. The position should be so chosen however, that no coarse foreign matter can enter through the entry location in use. Unused actuator-key entry locations are to be protected by slot closure devices. The safety interlock switch has a permanently set retention force of 30 N."

Thanks to everyone for helping me keep the customer satisfied. - Dan

Cap or cover


Explanation:
Hello Dan,

As you know, a Verschluss, at least in pipe engineering, is a cap or cover. Schlitz could refer to slotted, or in my opinion it could also refer to the opening which the cap or cover might have to protect.

Good luck!

slotted covers


Explanation:
admittedly a guess -- from the context, Verschluss must be 'cover', and I'm guessing that they want to allow ventilation through the unused openings (or at least don't want to seal them) while preventing dirt from entering. Could also be 'louvered covers'.
