Bracket to hang spare tire under vehicle. See if a lug wrench fits the nut on end of rod.

I've seen something like that used to hold water pipes (on a ship??)

The top would grab onto something like an I-beam, and the bottom would use some kind of strap around the pipe and threads would allow for adjustment of pipe leveling.

They look like old school pipe hangers. The beefy part is definitely a beam clamp. The threaded rod allows for adjustment of level and the "u" bracket at the bottom looks like it would match up with unis truth or something. You would never hang a hoist from something threaded...the shear on the threads would be scary dangerous.

That's possible but the shear on the threads is concerning on hefty loads, a beetrr design would be a bar or rod that is pinned

Do you have a picture that shows the 3/4 or 1/2 view of the larger end.
It appears that the large ends cross bar is either sheet or plate, formed to U-shaped cross section.

I also get a hint of an adjusting screw in that area. One end looks to be fixed, while the end opposite the exposed 'screw' might slide.

While I lean towards a 'hanger' of sorts, I'm not sure why there would be such attention to adjusting where it would clamp to the rail.

Pipe hangers need to be adjustable for elevation.
