Found this outside of my house and I'm curious as to what it came off of.. The two pieces of metal are connected with a spring hinge..

Nest time place a ruler in the photo so we can tell the size of it.

RE: What is this thing?

Is there a cable near where you found it? It looks like it might be a clamp that holds a cable to the house.
