What is this tool for (JT Strong Arms)???

Above the obvious tools lay a long rod with loop on one end. I thought it might be for my electric awning but there is no strap on it like manual Awnings.

I can honestly say that I've never seen a tool quite like that. I'm interested now to see if someone actually knows.

It isn’t a tool. It was used in old Dutch dancing. The Dutch couldn’t touch while dancing. The guy would place his arm in the larger hoop and the lady would hang onto the loop. Great fun I hear.

Looks as though it might reach in under the slide and hook the oval end over something to pull it out.

It's to reach down into the toilet and mix stuff up with.

No I'm pretty sure it is to use in the passthrough when things are just out of reach.

Looks like the tools used to unlatch manual awnings. Maybe just a standard issue for manual awning and it didn't get deleted.

It might be handy for opening and closing a dump valve that’s located under a slideout.

Seems like a crappy tool for that job.

No slide out on my unit or manual Awning but I do have the J strong arms. If that's what it's for it's a very awkward tool for it. I don't mind reaching below so that tool is rendered useless.

I wasn’t trying to prove the tool was efficient/effective/useful. I merely identified it - which was the question posed.

Well, you can use it then to poke around campfires or such.


Thanks Mr. Dan for the answer, as I will file that away to maybe help others with the same question in the future.

Could be for spare tire removal if you have one underneath?
Crank down the tire?

I've heard of that about the toilet "The Geo Method".

It's been solved in post #10 above. Mr Dan explained what the tool is used for, which is in this video below. I went ahead and edited the thread title to reflect this.
