This is a tool for use in model assembly.
Inter Allied's "China Clipper" is a very handy tool, especially when you need an extra hand or two to help you come to grips with a modeling project! You have to assemble the parts, then you're ready to go. Includes a base, two posts, and two clips (one smooth, one serrated) with clamp-action springs. Instructions are in Japanese, but these things are real easy to figure out!
