I found this in an old photo bag and I don't know what it is. It looks like a clamp for a light or tripod. It has a screw that opens the clamp/round part. It has rubber grippers inside of the round part. No writing on it at all...no identification. Thanks for your help.

Looks like a bifurcated trunnion, NOT. Don't know but it looks like it could be some sort of clamp used to join two poles together. Might fit around the ends of two poles lengthwise, then secured in place with set screws. Or maybe it's the world's ugliest pinky ring.

The best way to find out what it is for, is to throw it away. In three days, you will not only find out what it is for, but you will have to go out and buy one just like it, or the expensive thing it goes on won't work at all! (Just my experience, probably no one else's...)

Glad (?) to see that I'm not the only one who throws isolated loose parts away only to discover their purpose too late.

It looks just like an adjustable flijibulator I used to use for using an extension tube on my Chromega. It only worked with the 135mm lens, though.

Can you find a photographer to take some detailed pictures of it?

Could be a handlebar clamp for fixing something to a bike? Or a whatjermacallit.

With no scale, dunno how big it is. If the ID is a few inches and there is a 1/4-20 tapped hole in it, maybe it is a tripod adapter for a long lens.

I'm surprised that nobody's recognised a widget clamp .
