Spanish term or phrase: tripoide
A term used in Venezuela in the automotive industry.

English translation:dolly/tripod?
Explanation:
Sure it can't be "trípode"? I did find one site (regarding cameras, not automobiles) where they spelled it tripoide, but were obviously talking about a tripod. For trípode, Atienza also gives "dolly," which might be more appropriate in an automotive context, although I've seen jacks that are like tripods for holding up a car, too.

I never found out the real meaning. Since I live in Venezuela, I will ask a mechanic about the term since it is a term used in Venezuela. I know for certain that they are not talking about a "tripod". Thank you very much for your help.
