I'm sure there is someone out there who needs this!!
It is 57 3/4"...some kind of "trip rod"??
Has a square nut (jam nut?) & 2 flat washers on it, too.

Could be a tension rod to hold the sideboards on a wagon together or the tailgate in the same wagon.

Not sure why it would have a pull-type ring, though?

I think Bill has your answer here as well! I have seen quite a few around the old farmyards in Nebraska while pheasant hunting. Grandpa had many around his place, repurposed as electric fence posts. A few have found their way to my house, not really sure why, other than I thought they would come in handy. :D

Don't know why they have the ring, but I've seen plenty of them, many on the remains of wagons.

No, I don't want it either, but it might come in handy at some point, so hang on to it :wink:

It is a extension for the "Pull my finger" trick so any parents use with their childern when they need to fart!

That is the rare living room model!!!

It is missing the speciality end that went to the parents finger!

Some duct tape will work in a pinch though! :lol: :lol:

No, I dont want it either!

Bill has it right. The loop is to pull it out when you unload the wagon. The rod holds the sides together. The rod usually goes on the outside of the tailgate boards and also holds the top of usually 2 boards from pushing out when wagon is loaded. The loop makes it easier tp pull out and also acts as a stop for the end When you tighten the nut up you can hold the rod from turning by holding the loop.
Have used them many times on horse drawn wagons.

Hmmm... interesting! Wonder how the PO came into possession of those! He's a city boy, and I sure don't think he would have used them. Whoever sold the cub to him must have just "thrown them in"!

Do you guys know the correct terminology for them, so I can Google them? Thanks.

Ladder jacks.

Still have the scaffold for a similar set. Using as shelving. The old scaffold is made of 1 x 3's sandwiched together. Scarry when you walked on it.

Purchased an OSHA approve set of scaffold jacks and aluminum planks. I have windows about 20 feet above ground on the fixer-upper house to glaze and paint,

Edit. Sorry, posted in wrong topic.

I found this thread interesting so I did a little searching and found this picture which shows the loop end on a wagon
https://www.oxbowwagonsandcoaches.com/horse-drawn-antique-vehicles.html

And I think it is in this picture, indicating you may have a genuine IH part. :D

It may have been called a 'stay'. I don't have any expertise, except memories of working draft horses with dad, in days long past.
