"ritenuta" is the noun standing for the action of not allowing an object to go beyond a certain limit. it is used also for printing machines "a rope or strap that keeps the carriage of a hand printing press from moving too far forward" - Mc Grow Hill/Zanichelli dizionario enciclopedico scientifico e tecnico - though the context is not the same, the action can be compared I think. hope I have been useful..
