Furniture / Household Appliances / Sofa attachment piece
Spanish term or phrase: una guía
Hi,

I'm translating some product descriptions for an online retail site from Spanish for Spain to British English and am having trouble with one word. The product in question is a chaise longue sofa and the word appears in a sentence discussing how the chaise long is attached to the rest of the sofa. Please the full sentence below:

"La chaise longue esta fijada al sofá a través de una guía."

The product in question can be found at the following link:

What would be the most appropriate term to use here please?

Many thanks!
