    Sorry, very confusing question. What parts specifically? What's with all the numbers? Please edit your picture, remove irrelevant stuff, add an arrow pointing to the parts you mean. – user22427 Aug 28 '19 at 11:09
  • And explain the context of these diagrams! You might be best asking on a SE more specifically related to the subject you're asking about – Gamora Aug 29 '19 at 13:52

I wouldn't call it a mortise and tenon joint, that is a woodworking term where one piece of wood is fitted into another. This looks like some kind of clip. Mortise and tenon joints don't clip together. If I needed to describe the connectors I would use "the male/female part" to describe it.

Apply a thin coat of glue to the male part of the clip...
