What are these...help with ID

I recently purchased a 26' 1968 AS international Overlander. It is in pretty good condition with all the original equipment. While checking out the outside storage compartments I found the following items. I have no idea what these are or what they are used for. Can somebody here help me!

Parking chocks - put them between your tires (one on each side), and tighten up the cam.

Those are wheel locks. Put one between the between the two tires on each side of your trailer and pull the handle down to lock.

They are better than any wheel chocks that you can buy today. (as far as I am concerned) place them between the trailer tires then push the lever-handle down and they bind the tires together. ( I only have one and the trailer never moves!) There is also a place for a pad lock to hold the handle closed for extra trailer theft deterrent.

They are the original style of wheel chocks. I dont think they are Airstream equipment though.
If you dont want them let me know they would go good in my antique collection.

Here's what ours look like. They work very well, which is good when parked on a pretty good slope as in this picture.
