Its mostly worn around a human waist but when its not it is worn on a horse but not around the horse's waist.
Ah, the rider more or less stores the hobbles as a belt around his waist, and takes it off to use as hobbles...?

I will have a go. I had to blur out what is cast into the tool as I am afraid it would give it away.

Well I don't think it would be a risk of giving it away if I say that it is in fact meant to move two items apart as a jack of course would. However, this device was engineered for a specific purpose and from experience I will say that it does it quite well. Its intended purpose was not to lift things.

Nope. I will give another clue. I am sure someone on this forum has done the task that this tool is meant to do, only done it the hard way. I will tag my favorite member again. LOL. @jim hardy The tool in the very first image in this thread has likely been used many times to do what this tool is designed for. Not as a chopping operation though.

real men don't use a gadget to break the bead.

you either use two tyre levers or put the tyre flat on the ground and run over it with another vehicle a few times.

= real men would never have seen such a device....disqualified.

I've used a device like that on big tractor tires, where you don't remove the rim from the tractor... just the tire off the rim.

The breaker I used was powered by air, so your picture wasn't a dead give away... the design of the "foot" in the upper right, picture two helped, so did your clues...

I googled "bead breaker", and found the image I posted...

Tires I used the tool on...

Reminds me of a stand off I was in loggers versus environmentalists. It was tense and aggressive. One night the hippie's challenged the truckers to a tyre changing contest on a logging truck.

The truckers thought they would win easy. This hippy apparently worked in a previous life as a mechanic assistant.

He beat all the truckers at changing tyres, they couldn't believe it.

Both groups respected each other after that and prolly defused the seething violence that was brewing.
