look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
A small plastic tab that holds electronics together so that they cannot be easily dismantled without breaking the tabs. When the tabs are broken, it usually prompts the person doing the dismantling to say "damnit" hence the name "damnit tab"
While dismantling the telephone, I broke the damnit tabs which led me to say damnit.
