Tool Box Doodads

Question

Cleaning out my bike tool box, and I found these buried in the bottom.  I think my old boss gave them to me over a decade ago, but not sure what any really are useful for relating to any of my current bikes :(  Not even sure what a few of them do (except the obvious chain tool).

Well, I can tell you the top half of it looks like a spring. And while we're at it, do you think you can give a less revealing photo of it?

the wire thing is for holding brakes closed to make cable installs easier.

The big round thing between the two wrenches is a crank remover for square taper cranks.  The small round thing maybe the adapter for ISIS and Octalink cranks.

Yeah - googling Suntour 8.8.8. got this:

The Maeda Iron Works Company (later called SunTour) was founded in 1912 by Shikanosuke Maeda and their first product, the bicycle freewheel, was amed 8.8.8.   Why "8.8.8?" The number 8 represents success, wealth and prosperity...

Maybe it is some sort of freewheel tool?

BINGO - I think it is and would fit into those slots and let a wrench be used to turn it.

Suntour | there is no "I" in cyclyng

If you had posted the opposite side first, I would have known.  Used similar tools on BMX bikes back in the day.  Could not tell size, etc.

Well one side was obviously to be turned by a wrench, so the other side had to do something.

Setting it flat in shag carpet did not help either.

Is that a pubic hair on your "shop towel" to the left of the freewheel tool?
