    Default What is this for?

    20190612_154949.jpg20190612_154959.jpg

    I found this on board recently. Does anyone know what it is and how it is used? (In case it is not easily visible it says 'belt lifter' on the shaft, which is hollow)

    Thanks,

    Michael.

    That is because it is connected with the black thing, which is a condom-stretcher.
