    Just a guess, match holder, to light the pilot.

    It is actually a hook you stick thru your lip before you blow the pilot out and try to gas yourself or blow yourself up so you cannot pull away.

    Either that or a match holder to light the pilot

    It was not the electronic start pilot, matches or BBQ lighter. I kept my clip on my keychain.

    No slide. Wouldn't be a roach clip.

    It is a match holder to get the match far enough into the chamber to reach the pilot.
    Used em a few times.

    Went to The Big Box Store and asked " The Expert " on Duty Saturday Morning .

    Ask for a Drip Leg ( which is missing ) and " The Big Box Expert sold him that gadget.
