English translation:Locking ring wrench
Explanation:
The Stirnlochschlüssel shows up in the Hoffman tool catalog. You might remember the older watches with screw on backs. The had notches along the perimeter of the cover and it required a special wrench to remove this cover. The locking ring wrench is very similar but is designed for round holes on the face of a ring with inside thread, typically a bearing retainer.
Related to this are locking ring pliers for spring type locking rings (also referred to as Jesus rings - based on the exclamation once the ring becomes airboen) which rest in a groove.

Pin type face wrench or face spanner


Explanation:
Im Ernst werden hierbei Unterschiede gemacht zwischen einem Stirnlochschlüssel (face spanner) als Werkzeug oder einem festen bzw. einstellbaren Stirnlochschlüssel (pin type face wrench). Vielleicht wird das im Kontext deutlich.

Gruß,

Antje
