Hey Jeff,
I've never seen one like it, but it may possibly have been a lock-out for some cable controlled apparatus, such as a built-in-the-early-1900's-elevator. These old freight (mostly) elevators used a hand-cable to shift the over-head line-shaft crossed belt system to achieve direction and brake application. If that were locked around the cable, it may have prevented operation, Hand cables were nominally 3/8" wire rope, with about 2" clamp balls to adjust and limit throw.
Take care.
