In SGI world, a shoehorn is a single-slot XIO-to-PCI adapter, while a shoebox (aka PCI cage or card cage) is an XIO-to-PCI adapter that supports multiple PCI cards. They were available for Octanes and Origin 2xs. For example, see http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/SGI_Octane
FWIW... You can specify a heading in a wiki topic with hash and change the spaces to underscore.
The wiki is not that clear but this section specifically...

aw, what the hey... I just added a shoe horn and a shoe box topic on the wiki to point back to that section.
