My guess is that the upper arms are squozen to align the upper loops, a solid rod or a flexible hose goes through the lower loop, and releasing the arms clamps the hose shut, or holds the rod firmly in place.

I seriously doubt that it's a birth control device, although, if it was, it would be VICIOUSLY effective.
Since it's not LATERALLY adjustable, it can't be for controlling the RATE of flow through a hose.
I can imagine it being slid onto a CANE, to hang shopping bags on.

It MIGHT be a capo for a round-necked AKONTANG.

A couple of weiners or marshmellows could placed on the prongs for roasting!

That would be my guess, too - though one imagines it could handle more than a snausage.

Thank you. At -15C, there's no urgency to sit around a camp fire cooking supper.
I had a dozen camp forks, might have given them away.
The portability and convenience of these will make perfect family gifts.

My dad would find stuff like that on his walks. His favourite answer was "some day I will find a use for that". Before moving from their big house it took several trips to the dump to get ready for the actual move.

I'm glad you like them Brian.  We're in lockdown here so little things like backyard campfire cooking mean a lot at the moment. It's amazing what a sausage cooked on a stick followed by a few marshmallows will do for the morale of the kids.

You bet your sweet nitrosoamines. Three cheers for Maillard Reactions!

I wouldn't call it a "lock-down" here. Non essential travel is discouraged ( unless you're an arrogant politician). Then, the world's your oyster (and I hope you get Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning.)

I consider everything I do outside of home is essential business, even the liquor store and the pub for supper. My mental health does not need to become an additional drag on resources, if I can help it.

So I have lots of tools and toys in a warm house full of food and drink. And old Heidi-cat, begging for tuna.

Yea, well, you assume we all have access to sticks. Which means there are trees around. I live in Kansas!  Brad

I'll mail you some Brad.

Stick that is, not trees - that would be impractical.

Yep.  Imported from China.  Many many years ago the gamers decided to build the pheasant population in Kansas and tried all the varieties that should have thrived.  Finally, they imported some decorative pretty Chinese birds, the ringneck.  (This is what I have always been told, anyway) Well they love it here, and decided to hang around...even if thousands show up every year-with dogs in order to put em on the table.
