What is this tool - Fellow Alpine owner wants to know

Hello all,

Here in Yuma, AZ, and my neighbor came over because his friend another alpine owner, showed him this tool. I have never seen it, and don't know what it does. Can anyone tell me. it looks like some kind of locking lever to lift a slide, but since we don't have that kind of slide, we don't have one. Please help my neighbor.

I'm not so sure that's a tool. It looks more like a handle that broke off of something.

I have one just like it. It is used to release the arms of my Demco Aluminator tow bar. Most often I can release them without it so rarely use it.

My Excalibar (tow Bar) uses that tool.

I have a similar tool to torque the bolts on my neck. Mine might be smaller, can't tell from the photos.

No need to apologize. The options were extra, but I shelled out the extra bucks.
