    How these sliding fixers are called?

    Many cameras and lens board adapters come with metal sliding fixers for lens boards. Do these fixers have a specific name?

    Lens board retainer?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    In the link you provided, Grimes refers to them as a “sliding clamp.” As good a name as any other you’ll hear.

    I would say "lens board retainer/ retainer set" But others work as well.
