Hint time:

It's metal, but I don't know what kind.

Another hint: This can handle a lot of power.

My guess is one of the sockets for a plug?

Nope, not a plug. I'm assuming you're using the European standard of round holes in your power outlets.

No one? Any one?


OK, another hint: The holes aren't really used.... they're a throwback to the 'old days'.

Light fixture in a dirty swimming pool? I do not think it is.

Oh, this is just torture. Could it be the hole at the end of one of the blades of a standard electrical plug? It is the only thing I can think of that is old fashioned and serves no purpose, that I may have a hundred of and that handles a lot of power. I know, your said it's not a plug.

Thanks for all these "whatsits". It is fun playing.

...The hole looks too small to me - and those holes actually do serve a purpose.

Can't think of anything that might look like that and have a hole that isn't used...
