What Is It? Game 98

W00t! It's time for our collaboration with the always-fun What is It? blog. Can you guess what this strange contraption pictured to the left is for?

Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please - though you can enter as many as you'd like. Please post no URL or weblinks - let others play (you'll be disqualified if you do so).

The first person who guessed right will get a Free Neatorama T-shirt. If no one gets it right, then the funniest guess will win.

Is it a prototype Dalek? Find more clues at the What is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update 5/8/09 - that was too easy! Here's the answer: A TaylorMade golf club display stand, these can be found near the indoor practice area in a golf shop. It would not have held a full set, but a selection of different models of the same number club, I saw a display like this in a local shop and it was full of six irons. The clubs were available for customers to hit a few balls with each to compare the performance of the various models.

Congratulations to: Joe #8 who got it right first!

I am pretty sure that this is a caddy used by meter maids to empty parking meters. The coins in a parking meter are deposited into a container which only opens when it is placed into the square hole so the meter maids can't skim some change off the top.
