Italian term or phrase: scooby doo
Hello, am translating a website that deals with the hire and sale of marquees and tensile-structures.
I come across a type of method for closing the side curtains of a marquee, so-called, "scooby doo", but the only Scooby I know of like bones and rides in a van.
Could "quick-draw" do the trick? Has anyone ever seen this type of closing method? TIA
---------------

La struttura presenta un’armatura in alluminio anodizzata di alta resistenza con dimensioni 120×200, modulare in lunghezza con elementi di 5 m. I teli di copertura sia tetto che di tamponamento laterale sono realizzati con membrana impermeabile spalmata in PVC bianco ignifugo di classe (2) con peso di 750 gr/mq.
Tutti modulari ed indipendenti scorrono nelle canaline appositamente studiate all’interno del profilato portante d’ogni campata.
I teli di chiusura laterali, opachi o finestrati, scorrevoli e raccoglibili sui montanti, sono predisposti per una chiusura rapida mediante scooby doo.
Le tende modello Expo a 2 falde possono essere arricchite con una serie di accessori pensati appositamente: illuminazione, controsoffitto plissettato o teso, pavimentazione in bolla con recupero del dislivello, rivestimento della pavimentazione in moquette, linoleum, laminati, riscaldamento e climatizzazione.

Explanation:

I do not know about a scooby doo closing method. In both case, i prefer leave names as-is when possible. This is a typical case.

  -> Thanks!

disagree  Rosanna Palermo: Scooby-Doo is a trademark owned by Hanna & Barbera. Using it for commercial purposes is definitively not advisable. Moreover, this is a translation. It has to make sense to English speakers. You would not say "mediante Topo Gigio" in Italian.

neutral  Rosanna Palermo: it's a closure system for a big party tent. Cannot be a bungee. Bungees are elastic, used to tension the roof (see your own link), not pull the walls together like a curtain https://www.customcovers.co.uk/res/curved-structures-handboo...

  -> Yes I know it's a marquee, I said it "could" be a bungee cord as a familiar term but my first answer is PVC cord. So maybe pvc rope or cord would work then. https://www.customcovers.co.uk/marquee-glossary.html

  -> Definitely not literally! I was thinking more along the lines of something with lanyard.

Based on the following, it seems similar to the old style pull string curtain rods (one way or 2 ways)
