Rationale: The specification describes that the part that is subject to this specification shall be "held" in order conduct an inspection. The word held is ambiguous and is being interpreted differently by suppliers and users. It needs to be described more precisely so a standard method can be used for inspection of the part across industry. The part is very thin sheet metal bent in a circle and must be restrained in order for an inspection to take place.
