Found this on e-bay, what do you chaps reckon? Looks pretty surreal to me whatever it is.

As far as I can make out they are communications engineers, probably something for climbing telegraph poles right?

I've got a set of these and the belt somewhere - they are the doo-dads for climbing telegraph poles. I keep meaning to find a redundant pole* and have a go one day...





* most are employed as plumbers near me.
