German term or phrase:Einheitswerkzeug
general context: tender spec for auto accessories
Specific context: bullet list under 'Befestigungskonzepte:'
- Verwendung von Einheitswerkzeug (Einheitsgröße, Schlüsselweite)
Explanation: No hits on AltaVista, Google or Northernlight for Einheitswerkzeug. Nothing in my dictionaries.
Einheitsgröße might give a clue. In a short list (+werkzeug +einheitsgröße) on AltaVista there were three meanings: (1) one size fits all (e.g. ponchos); (2) size of a [military] unit; (3) size of a physical unit (e.g. 1 cm). Other meanings are possible. One meaning that might fit here is "adjustable, adjustable-end" (as in adjustable-end wrench). Just food for thought, not exactly what you need right now.
