Spanish term or phrase: patin de apertura
Dear colleagues:

Firstly, happy holidays to all.

I need help with the term "patin de apertura". This section of the manual speaks to the placement of the operator on the roof of the elevator car.

US English please. Context:

La instalación del operador puede hacerse sobre el techo de cabina o bien en el frontal utilizando las jambas como puntos de anclaje.

El operador viene embalado en una caja y sobre unos soportes de madera, junto a la pisadera, el *** patin de apertura *** y la bolsa de accesorios.

Al ser montado sobre las 2 omegas de cabina, situadas en el techo del embarque de la cabina, se fija con 2 soportes con sus tornillos, tuecas y arandelas correspondientes, para su regulación.

Thank you for your suggestions.

And a happy New Year to all.
