721 Valve lapping tool for engines.
722 Fuel checker for a Cessna. Push it into a fitting on the fuel tank sump to drain a bit of fuel so you can look for contaminants.

725 is missing foam rubber pads under each of the metal "buttons". I know *exactly* what this is, it's a clamp to hold your nostrils closed.

723: Travelers portable security lock for motel/hotel doors.
The tab on the large flat piece goes into the door frame latch and the pin (it's spring loaded) then goes into the appropriate hole in the serrated groove to hold the door closed.
725: Adjustable nipple clamp - it's missing the rubber pads. Usually seen in pairs. Don't ask me how I know. <blush>

This clamp is much too tight to be used on any part of the body, it would cause serious damage. You're probably thinking of a clover clamp, they have a spring and aren't as strong.

to a nasal clamp. I'm claiming half-credit for the missing sponge bit. What's a clover clamp?

725 has had several plausible answers, but not the one I think I remember--hanging up film to dry. (and, yes, I agree that it originally had rubber jaws.)

I've seen those film tongs, but never with that locking lever. I was thinking, "pocket grommet squasher", but that's kind of silly - then whoever came up with "nipple ring (without the rubber pads)" kinda struck me, but in reality I think it's just some kind of generic clamp that a bunch of people found useful for various things, and so, since they were selling, they made more. :-)

I wonder how oxygen was distributed in a bomber. If a line were torn, everybody dependent on that tank could soon pass out unless a crewman had a locking clamp in his pocket.
It may have been issued to ground crews to pinch a tube during maintenance.

Forgot to mention thanks to everyone who clued me in about number 725, I thought it was some type of clamp but didn't know it was missing the rubber pieces.
