I need help identifying this object. It’s injection molded plastic; it feels very much like cheap kitchen utensils. It is made of two pieces and pivots in the middle – this appears to be for more convenient storage and not any function of the tool. The two prongs are not quite parallel (they pinch in towards each other a bit) but are springy in that direction – they will splay apart easily. The bottom edge of the prongs each has 3 shallow barbs, so that it can be easily inserted but would require more effort to remove (or perhaps so it can be inserted between two things and pull one of them out?).
It is roughly 12” long when folded out.
The first person who can identify it and post a hyperlink to one for sale or in use gets a grease pot similar, but more compact and – honestly – a better design, to the one pictured here. Thanks for your suggestions,
