Default What are they?

About 7/16" thick and 3" long.
No finish, just maple wood. Not going for fancy or pretty here!
Yes, that's a shoestring.
Made these for mom as she can more easily grip them.

1 Gadgets to open can lids more readily?
2 Scratcher for that itch you just can't research ?
3 allow you to twist keys?
4 tea bag squeezers?
5 allow you to push buttons on damn cell phones?

Otherwise give up.

Would they be something like a window handle?

At first I was gonna say a poorly made set of castanets.

Hehe...Ken, I realized after I posted this that the picture title would be a giveaway.

Anyway, these are an easier way to move the latches on stormdoor screens.
Who's idea was it to make those so difficult to use?

The string keeps them together and you can hang them on the hinge of the main door and out of the way.
