    What_the
    (4 items)

    Hello,
    I am hoping someone can help me determine what this is/was used for. The arrowhead shaped tip is able to rotate freely. The rod is threaded about 40% of the length for travel of the eared piece.
    I'm thinking it is used to tension something but what that might be I haven't a clue.
    Thank you for your interest & insight

      It's part of a shoe stretcher, you are missing the two wooden parts.

      I've seen a few of these over the years so I recognized it when I saw the photo.

      I have had a shoe stretcher (always with the wood attached) and when RobH commented, it brought back my view of that shoe stretcher and the eared bolt fit my mental diagram and the 1/2 threading and handle fell in line.
