A device to carry more carrier bags in one hand, the wood goes through the loops in the metal & you hook your bags on the hooks on the metal?
Or more likely you assemble it the same way & itís to hang something off, maybe your bicycle to take to the patch?
A woman's place is in her garden.

Pound shop clearance grappling hooks....

Hooks for holding warthogs' nostrils open whilst administering veterinarian sinex....

A Turner prize winning exhibit entitled "Tracy Emin's allotment bits"...

Anchors for mooring really, really light vessels on sandy channel beds.....

Divining rods for use when dowsing for mercury springs.....

The wooden bit for inserting in warthogs from astern *ahem* to make their eyes pop whilst administering veterinarian optrex....

Links for attaching trousers belt loops to crane hoists to assist in pulling them up when the pockets contain excessive amounts of coins....

Wire hooks slipped on the end of the wooden handle to help transport loops of hose when you can't be bothered to wind said hose onto the reel.....

For use scraping down blackboards to set your classes' teeth on edge......

Handle for balancing on the top of the open shed door with spade hooked on one side and fork the other so that when one tool is lifted off, the other falls off on the other side of the door with an amusing clatter.....

The left over bits after assembling an Argos wardrobe....






I'll get me coat.
The Dales - probably fingerprint marks where God's hand touched the world

Hamsters - tears of laughter - as usual, but not even close..;0)

Love the coins in trousers bit, d'you remember uncles having about five pounds of change in half-crowns, florins, old pennies etc, reaching in with a huge paw and hoisting out a sixpence for an ice cream..:0)

Thank you Lards!

The pic shows something a bit more ordinary, but they're not scales...

Well Growster, I haven't got a clue, although I have enjoyed reading peoples ideas.
I wonder if it is just a load of stuff you put there, (just to wind us all up)  :D :D that actually doesn't do anything at all, I am just thinking outside the box  :unsure: :unsure: :unsure: Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

One wire pair of hooks in each handle of a plastic trug and the wooden spar joining them to enable carrying a loaded trug one handed.

or  wind chimes for the unmusical....

or  implements for wrenching a Yorkshireman's wallet open long enough to extract the price of a round,,,,

or  the bits from an "ancient" rustic pub game with some sort of cod 'Mummerset' name, actually invented in 1996 by a group of bored students...

or  what is left of a Hermes handbag after the crocodile skin is removed....

or  a basic model wand given free along with the set of broomstick hooks for the Hogwarts equivalent of a bike shed...

Oooohhhh the labyrinth that is your mind, Hamstergbert. I'm sure that the synapses that fire away inside your wonderful noddle are totally unique.   Thanks for the chuckles and the amazing mental images :D :D :D
