    Ed, have you tried looking up the manufacturer's site? I see the label but can't read it.

    Looks like a mount for something. The 2 pins and the lip at the back fit into the appropriate sockets and the screw goes down to clamp it in place.

    Melted, yours looks like a jig to drill door hardware. You'd use the large hole on one side to center the hole saw to drill for the handle set, and the side guide automatically self centers to guide a 1" spade bit.

    Whatever it is Ed's clamps on they don't want the surface scratched.

    Ed - that is clearly for getting the lid off a full 1 gallon pail of ice cream.

    It provides extra leverage to get the lid moving that first inch or so needed to break the frozen seal of the ice cream stuck to the lid.

    Clamp is marked "PA_____"
    Maybe Panavise or Panduit ?
    Silvery part looks almost like a Uni-strut clamp.
    Photographic lighting/background hardware?
    Store or trade show display hardware ?

    .....maybe I should just say "I don't know".

    That could be it. It had me stumped. It has little rubber feet beside the larger holes that would prevent the door from getting marred. Thanks.

    There are UniLock mounting systems for both camera equipment and musical instruments like drums & cymbals might be from one of those although I didn't find anything that looked like it.
