Mystery photo: the whole thing

Well done KevinTOO. Yes, it's a pawl lifter - at least, that's what I call it.

And what a fine device it is, serving two functions: a means of disengaging the pawl without getting greasy fingers; and a weight to keep the pawl engaged when winding up the paddle.

For a bonus* can you tell me where I took this photo?

*purely for your own satisfaction - no points or prizes, sorry!

Sorry Halfie, I have no idea 'where' as I've never seen one like that, but as you say what an excellent idea (even better if the gear ever gets treated to a splodge of grease... lol)
