    Got these a few weeks back . gonna start picking up old tools and listing them on ebay . I have no idea what these are , I thought they were drawer pulls. My old man thinks they are to heavy and are boat tie downs of some sort.

    Partially correct.

    They are more likely from a trailer or other shipping mechanism. Look a little too heavy duty to be from a standard boat.

    They are called cleats, or tie down points, newer styles are mainly the D ring style. The hideaway style is really nice, keeps many toes from being smashed from a flat bed trailer.

    If there is a gripping surface on the underside when they flip out, they are hideaway steps for trailers or other thigns where a standard step would be an annoyance.

    They might be inset pocket handles for a trap door on floor level.

    If your hands fit in them and they only come up 90 degrees I would say they are handles for a heavy box, like a tool box.

    Handles for trap doors or hatch doors. They sit flush so you can walk over them easily, Or throw a rug over it to hide it.
