    My guess would be some kind of lock, kinda reminds me of The Club for steering wheels

    Yes I agree but at 8 inches I was thinking of a brake pedal lock or something to lock a boat door? Trailer hitch lock? Since it was found close to the shore

    Obviously made of brass, it definitely has some age to it as well.
    Probably dates to the early 1900s... maybe for securing a window closed on a boat?

    To clarify it was found in the yard of a home (on Lake Michigan) built in the 1860s

    So, the rod is one piece and about 8' long? The center mechanism is some sort of ratchet that engages the notches on the rod?
