I gave it to a guy that was in the Air Force and he had no idea what it is.
I was thinking along the lines of what Joe_padavano is saying but everyone else thought it's for hanging your laundry or walking the dog. (and these people are in our car group).
I looked up the web site before I asked you guys but, I didn't get the info that killeratrod found.
Now I just need the time to go through the site and see if it's worth anything.
Thanks for the info. You guys are GREAT.
