I have made 2 or 3 of these over the years. How many guesses to figure out what it is used for.

Looks like a rope ladder step. Helps climb up into the truck bed. Barnyards truck is SO TALL!
Do you hang the small loop on a cabinet door handle so you can step on the pipe and reach the top shelf?

Belt to hold up pants. Lasts much longer and more durable than twine.

One guess has been pretty close. Remember this was made and is used by an old man with two artificial hips and a bad back, though being lazy he has used one long before any of those problems.
