Having been raised on a farm where money was tight, I can think of lots of uses for the corncob handles, both as cushions and insulators, but the small loop and small size of the wire have me puzzled. As small as the wire is and the bend in the end it could not be for anything very heavy or a hard pull.

The thought of a replacement handle to flush the commode comes to mind, but if your money were that tight you probably would not have indoor plumbing. I was 14 before we had water in the house without carrying it in with a bucket.

That crossed my mind too Rick. Seems a little risky if the wires did touch with some juice in the battery.

I do have a battery carrier/lifter of a similar design, but made with a rubberized plastic strap and 2 heavy metal loops sized for the two battery post sizes. We had one when I was growing up on the farm, that was factory made, but used a piece of V belting for the handle.
