    As Techno says, deffo looks like a gas bottle retainer. Having said that, it would normally have a two-part nylon strap with it and a screw hole for locker wall fixing (n)

    They're for putting under the wheels when you park on boggy grass. :cautious:

    It's definitely a non ferrous adalight rod, it connects to the intergalactic stellar star wheel.
    If you don't need it stick it on Ebay.

    That gives a better idea. The way I see it the two ends are finger grips, the middle holds something and the slots hook into hooks.

    A battery would fit that size. What else ? Tool roll.
