    It's a horribly designed zip line handle that will never work for zip lining.

    I have a couple of these I salvaged (for the 1/4" rods) from an old house I demolished several years ago.

    I was thinking it looked like some plumbing item I have seen, Something involved with a toilet tank, perhaps...... grounding is possible too, although it seems clumsy for that.

    The paper stuff I assume is because the rod is a little small for the clamp......plain paper is not much of an insulator. Varnished paper is pretty decent.

    Or some part of an adjustable operator arm. Rod move between two parallel guides, clamp adjusts position and/or throw, operator arm attached via the two screws.

    it appears to be split (in photo 3). Does that split go all the way to the shaft?

    Do the screws pass through the side with the number on it, and thread into the side on the other side of the split?

    It looks like an adjustable stop of some kind, the window mechanism posted earlier may well be on the right lines.

    I don't think it takes side forces, if it did, would have hex heads on it.

    If it was domestic origin, then slotted screws were the norm, not hex heads.
