7-5-19 whats this number 22 button hook

Gary Brown from Oxford, Neb. contributed this contraption for “What’s This?”

At it’s widest point, the hook is just 1 inch wide and overall, it sits at about 4.5 inches long.

Tina Brown, Brown’s daughter-in-law, was asked to submit it and said that Gary knows its intended purpose.

It clearly is designed to hook onto something, but what is the end for?

So, readers, “What’s This?” and why does it work the way it does?
