    this ones been bugging me for years.
    here we have 2 peddles. but what it attaches to puzzles me. even if it did hook to something, what would it do?

    Not just 2 pedals---a set of pedals. One left, one right. Looks like the pedals are steel,
    and the hooks are---Aluminum???? Beyond those observations, no good idea.

    They look like the peddles i've seen on some of the Amish wagons in my area. They also remind me of tractor peddles.

    You step on a pedal. To sell is to peddle. Let's not pollute the language.....y'all. :p

    Possibly some form of a ladder jack (scaffold bracket that attaches to a ladder) Looks like the lower part has paint on it.
