Japanese term or phrase: 猫手締結
I am baffled... Not sure if a 'cat's paw' legitimately exists in an automotive context...

Does anyone have any idea what this would be translated as?
Thanks

I found out later that it was 'cat's paw', but was not a knot, as it describes something inside a vehicle engine.
