It kind of looks like a paint can opener but one end does not match. I have a photo of a paint can opener.

Looks like the tab at the bottom is designed to go in a slot and lock by turning.

I have seen SO many boat parts that look extremely similar, shift mechanisms, carb parts, etc. I'm guessing a Push Pull Cable End? Definitely a unique, specialized job that it performs.
My Tinny is a tool, a means to an end, if you will.

Naw, I think it is more likely a thingamabob.

Jim says he found this at his office. I'll jump to the conclusion he found it on the floor. I think it is a part that fell off of a vacuum cleaner used by the cleaning crew. Pure deductive reasoning Watson - :D
