German term or phrase: Nasen
This appears in an operating manual for probe housing used in water treatment.
"Das Oberteil der Messzelle ganz in das Gehäuse einschieben und im Uhrzeigersinn vorsichtig bis zum Anschlag drehen, damit die Nasen des Bajonett-Verschlusses nicht abbrechen."
Any ideas?

noses / projections
Explanation:
Ein Bajonett-Verschluss hat sogenannte Nasen, die in der Entnahmestellung nicht überlappen, und es damit ermöglichen die Verbindung zu lösen. In Verschlußstellung sind beide Teile des Bajonett-Verschlusses gegeneinander verdreht, so daß sie nicht auseinandergezogen werden können.

spigot


Explanation:
Seeing that this is something technical, I'd go for the engineering term of spigot, however, other suggestions of the same kind are:

pin - pivot - peg

agree  1964: yes but they say nozzles for such noses

  -> A nozzle would be a Schnauze, Stutzen, Düse oder Zapfpistole. "Notches" (Kerben) might be an alternative, though.
