I assume it screws into something...?

Is it DIY related?

It does screw into something. It's not DIY related.

mack's very close. A climbing pin, or piton, is hammered into rock by a climber. However, this gizmo isn't hammered into wherever it goes, and it isn't used when climbing rocks.

You've gone cool again Mack. You were *very* close before. People who use pitons *may* also use these gizmos.

An ice screw (for climbing)?

Spot on! A Black Diamond ice screw, used by climbers on glaciers and ice walls to perform a similar function to a rock climber's piton.

Edit: The screw is hollow (hence no pointy end), and the small metal section is just a flip-up handle to aid insertion.
