I have a Bogen/Manfrotto tripod that I bought in my 35 mm SLR days. I have not used it in years. As I am now getting more serious about digital photography, I thought I would pull it out of the closet. I was starting to write up a detailed description of this little plastic clip, and it dawned on me that I am on a photographic forum, and I have a very nice camera available. DOH! Why not just post a picture?

So, what is this little plastic clip for? It looks like it is meant to hold something along the leg, but I have no clue as to what that would be. The protrusion on the right is hex shaped internally, but is not threaded, so I don't know what it would be use for.

There is a 3/8 inch diameter threaded hole on the tripod just above the leg attachment point. Would this be used to hold some spare attachment?

Any help in satisfying my curiosity would be appreciated.

The plastic device is a wrench that can be used to tighten the clamp bolts (but it is pretty weak and not very effective).

The threaded hole is for a carrying strap.
