Unknown tool


Any ideas on what this tool is used for. Dimensions are 4 inches across and 1,5 inches max width between the clamps.

Compress spring, as suggested already, or the other way to remove a pulley? It might be a bitch to remove once a nut is secured and the tool is between that and the spring.
It looks like a clockwise turn draws it out, so I'd go for the removal.
