Name that part

Can anyone shed some light on what this part is? I found it in my stinky slinky storage bin... May not even be anything for the Airstream, not sure.

Looks like slinky bling to me. Is yours missing an earring?

Actually it is the slider hook for the folding privacy door. The running rail attached to the ceiling has a track in each side and the hook attached to the metal rod that runs down the length of the vinyl door at the folds.

The width of the roller I think is wider than the track for the privacy door. I will double check though. Thanks for the ideas.

The thing-a-ma-jigs weren't produced for Airstreams until '69.

I'm surprised no one knows what that is.



It's clearly a hook with two wheels attached.
