Is the orange significant? Safety device, marine, etc.

Color is not significant. They (although I don't know who "they" is) make them in almost any color. I suppose these could be found on a boat, though the boat would be a container ship, and it would be a one-time trip.

I had to look up "belay." No, sorry.

A one-use-only item, then it's trashed??-?

Boy, I hope not. That would get expensive. This item, much much larger than what is pictured, is designed to be used thousands of times.

Part of this lifts. The other part doesn't.

I'm having trouble with "thousands of times" versus "the boat would be a container ship, and it would be a one-time trip."


Is the silver part intended to come away from the orange part, (without brealing it)?

It comes over on a container ship, because it is manufactured overseas, but it is used thousands of times where it is located here in the states.

When these wear out or break, it is thrown away, because they're so inexpensive.

The silver part is supposed to be in the red hole for the lifetime of the device. If it did detach, this would be thrown away.

Hints: there are only two parts to this object, and they are both shown in the picture. The silver is steel, and the red part is plastic.

Note: I work very late into the night, so I tend to be only able to post at about 11PM local time and shortly after.

Is the red bit fixed to something which would have more of them fixed to it?

Ahh, good question! Yes. Not affixed per the definition - as in literally attached. More like adjacent to or next to.

But... this is then not adjacent to others when actually used.
