German term or phrase:Nordlockscheibe
Teil einer Justiervorrichtung an Rollstühlen, die den Winkel der Radneigung einstellen lässt. Alternativ zu "Nordlockscheiben" können auch Zahnringe verwendet werden.
Explanation: As far as I know this is a shake proof washer which has radial sharp-edged grooving on its mating surfaces. I frankly can't remember the English name although I've seen them often enough.
Nordlock is probably the name of the inventor, so I would translate it as "nordlock washer".
