    I found this in a box of of tools. Any ideas on what it is and used for.
    It has an overall length of 3-11/32 inches (85.23 mm).
    The bone (?) Plastic (?) handle is 7/32" thick & 1-37/64" long.
    The widest part of the metal oval loop is 11/64" (inside).
    Metal is 3/64" (1.43 mm) thick.
    No markings anywhere.
    Thanks for any information.

      this is a type of shoe or glove buttoning hook.

      Thank you Ron, I didn't even think along that direction, but I tried it on an old pair of baby shoes I have and could see how it works. Will post photo of baby shoes above.
