Dual purpose? Used one way up for hex nuts and upside down for C spanner nuts. Still does not explain the kink in the hex on both ends though.

Hi Ian

One bloke at our weekend rally, thought it was for closing wool packs, eg. Pulling the flaps tight before putting the staple in

Cheers

Reminds me a bit of the things used to grab and carry block ice, back in the day when we had ice chests rather than fridges.
If it's old, treat it like gold.

Hi  wee-allis

If it was for picking something up both sets of prong would be facing inward?

Got you Ian, but with it folded like it is in the photo, it's a bit hard to see how it operates.

I think it is a barbed wire  strainer for putting tension on the wire when erecting. I have something similar but not the hooks you have rather it has a "U" shape for the wire to fit into.

Hi

The tool is not mine, that's the only picture I have.  I will see the owner in the next few days (once I get over this head cold) and will get some more pics with it open.
