Mdq,
It sounds like a reefing claw. You use it to attach the vang when you have rolled the main around the boom to reef the main. Its considered obsolete now as most people use jiffy reefing or slab reefing. Roller reefing on the boom proved to be a poor choice for several reasons.
All the best,
Robert Gainer
