What is this, & what is it used for?

I bought these thinking they were long-reins for training in hand, they're a pair of two, but when I opened the package I noticed a different kind of buckle and lock, and that one side has a round thing for the string to go through, I didn't quite know how to use it or even what it could be. Bought it at a tack shop, here are some photos that might help identify this item's use.

(I ended up using 2 lunging ropes to train in hand)

Very odd looking lock?

I was going to say pulley draw reins at first, but you'd need two pulleys for that, lol. Maybe some kind of chambon or other type lunging device?

Very strange.. can't say as though I have seen anything quite like that before.. But if I were to take a shot in the dark, perhaps a Martin Gaile type rein. Hmmm!

I was going to say some kind of draw reins too until I saw that funny hook thing. Ask the store and let us all know please!

Yeah, I thought they were too at first. They look odd though, lol. Maybe some weird lead thingy?

Well darn, I thought I had it, but it's not quite it. Poptart made me think of it when she said lead thingy. I was thinking maybe it's a "Stableizer", but it doesn't have all the right parts.

Do both lines have a rope end like that and a pulley? Is the brass hook at the end of both lines?

Can you take a picture of both lines together, loosely coiled so we can clearly see the whole length of the line?

You have me really curious now, lol.
