Are there still photos of the device in use, as opposed to videos? I can never make sense of videos.

Oh, okay, that makes sense now. I had the way it snapped to figured out, but I was trying to make the handles be the working surface and vice versa, and that was tripping me up. Now that I see it it's obvious. Thanks!
Figured it out without the video once I realized the bit on the right was where the halves fitted together.
But until then I was picturing my mother* using it to remove a Band-Aid.
(*Or possibly Christian Szell.)
I have a device very similar to that, although the configuration of the jaws is different. It's for grabbing smallish items that would be awkward to reach without assistance. (At least a box of noodles isn't trying to twist around and bite me...)
Daniel Mannix wrote about catching rattlesnakes with a forked stick and a lasso. I guess snake tongs are an all in one tool. I am not about to try this myself.
The one time I handled a snake was a garter snake that got into the church basement during coffee hour. There were people standing on chairs and shrieking! I used a dish towel to catch the snake.
That timber rattler is lovely - and a great example of how colorations that look bright and visible on a plain background just disappear into leaf-litter.
