I found this on the garage floor under my wife's bike.  Anybody know what it goes to and/or what this is? Thanks in advance!

Sorry, for as many times as I've had various Silverwings apart, I don't recognize that as belonging to a Silverwing.

Also, I moved this topic from Introductions to General Chat.

Looks like some type of photography gear (photographer and filmmaker myself) - anyone have any gear in that field in your house?

It looks like a clamping screw from a tripod to me.

No photographers here. But that is an interesting possibility, that maybe it didn't even come off of the bike.
PS I forgot to say on the bottom of the larger round barrel it says lock & unlock.

Could a previous owner have had a camera mounted underneath?

No - we bought the bike new. But now I'm wondering if it maybe fell off of my bike and rolled under hers. I ride a Vespa 250 GTS

Doesn't look like anything off of any Honda I've worked on. It could be the locking nut that holds a Vespa's rear wheel on.

I think it attaches to a "key ring" hoop but from what I have no idea (don't ask why I'm thinking of this at 5am because I don't know either)

I think it could be a lock screw from the base plate or guide from a sabre saw, circular saw, power sander or similar shop tool????

Could it be the lock nut off a torque wrench?

Looks like the locking mechanism for my micro torque wrench from Harbor Freight.

Hornblower and Easyrider, I think you got it. I just took a look at a torque wrench in my tool cabinet and it's a perfect match.

To late now, it's been 3 days all the torque has probably drained out of the wrench affraid

Oh well, at the price of them a HF I can get a replacement if that happens to mine. I had good quality 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2 drive torque wrenches but my 1/2" was lost, probably inside something I worked on. Since I don't use 1/2" drive torque wrenches much I bought one from Harbor Freight. While it's ratchet isn't as smooth and it doesn't have as fine a pitch to the ratchet, it's pretty accurate. I checked it with a bolt in my vise and used a fish scale and weights to check the accuracy. Well within specs. These things are a bargain if you don't have a high production shop. Very sufficient for a home mechanic.

Thank you all for your help. It was indeed from the torque wrench. Thanks again ! I can feel safe with her riding her scoot again.
