Shaft Passer

Gentlemen,
I am reading one of Richard Feynman's books. He was an American Physicist that helped develop the atom bomb.
In this book he mentioned a German technology to thwart Allied mine sweepers called, "shaft passer". My understanding is this shaft passer allowed the underwater mines that were attached to the ocean floor to somehow pass through the cable type mine sweep between two surface ships. Does anyone have any information on this? I would very much appreciate any help on this topic.
Thank you in advance.
Richard Fisher
