Safety Chain Restraint

Just found a "Wally Byam Safety Chain Minder" It is a piece of round steel bar stock bent into the shape of a capital letter "B" only it is open at the vertex of the 2 curves.
Does anyone know how it is suppose to be attached to the safety chains, or have a reference to it?

Do you think it mounts on the A frame somewhere? You then hook the unused safety chains onto it when you aren't traveling so it keeps them off the ground?

Sell it on Ebay for $500?

The safety chain minders I have seen are gizmos that attach to the hook on the chain to keep it in place after it is hooked up, similar to a safety latch.
