Rocky Mountain Mystery Photo 1-27-14

Do you know what this is?
Lorraine Taylor of Hesperus, Colo., is wondering if any of our readers know anything about this mystery object.
It is 16-inches long. The small heart in the middle slides up and down opening and closing the end loops. It’s all twisted wire, a little heavier than baling wire.

We received one entry for last month’s mystery photo.
Ronald Tinkum of Granby, Colo., thinks the object is an old hose mender tool. It was used to tighten wire clamps when attaching fittings to hoses, mainly in underground mines on the smaller hand operated rock drills.
Denny Zitek of Grover, Colo., sent in the object. Thanks for sharing this mysterious photo with our readers and congratulations to Ronald Tinkum.
