A wild guess based on past experience with a similar word used in shelving.

Obviously linked with "regla" in the sense of "regular"

I find "regleteros" paired with "bornas" at a number of Websites; can't locate any Web site with "bridas" + "regleteros." [Termium says "bridas" are "flanges"] "Bornas" are "terminal connectors" When I look for "terminal connectors" + "train, " I find "blocks" or "terminal blocks" paired with the connectors:
