What's this for?

Had several driver kits, and therefore several of these BUT.. No idea what they are for. Any ideas?
It's the big 'Y' shaped one in the centre.

I haven't tried, but don't you use it in conjunction with the chrome bit holder if you haven't got a handle (or powered driver) to hand?

Re: What's this for?

Some driver bit sets that contain this 'Y' accessory mention a Hook Driver in the list of items included.

@doris, you just need a faster driver for frothing.

Wing nuts are designed to be easily tightened/untightened by hand

I have used Stilsons or a hammer to loosen larger wing-nuts.

Re: What's this for?

I didn't like to hammer my Stilsons preferring a length if steam pipe as an extension.
However if it was necessary to get production moving again......
