Found this in my new van...what might this be for?

Any ideas? It was in the back door pocket. Former (2nd) owner has no idea either...

Tofu press? Why not? Tastes like wood anyway.

Nice find and somewhat rare, they do pop up on occasion, however the "2X4 wood block with chrome handle upgrade" never quite found its stride in the market and quietly went away, most people found that, for the most part, a handle on a block of wood was completely unnecessary, go figure.
Does it smell like bacon?

It's simply a load spreader for pushing the top up I think. I, for one, have cracked the thing paneling of my ceiling pushing up too hard in one place before. I wonder if they used it to spread out the load when pushing up?

Just a thought.

Cockroach killer. Guaranteed. Place cockroach on hard surface, grab handle, and slam unit downwards crushing the insect. Very common gag from the depression.

You guys are morons. It's clearly a home made cement finisher for making improvements at campsites.
