Have a mystery tool

What it is.

Favorable review. Get the right-sized mystery tool for the job!

Scary video of tool in use.

Using the mystery tool under extreme circumstances. If he's by himself, who's doing the photography?

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.

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.
