Did you play with these in church?

While at my uncles memorial service over the weekend, I was reminded of things we used to do in church when I was little. The memorial service took place at my grandmothers church, which I attended quite often. I smiled when I saw that the hat things were still there. Apparently there's been little need for renovation and they have the same pews as when I was little. I wanted to just play with the hat hooks, but knew (as an adult) that it wasn't acceptable... Do you remember those hat hooks from church? Did you play with them????

That's what those things were for? Fifty years old and I never knew that, oh I feel so stupid. I remember them well, in my Church you had to push a little button and it opened the bottom of the clasp - I guess to hold the rim of the hat. I always thought they were for hanging the hymn books.

hmmm.... Let me see... (too bad it was church and I couldn't take a pic!) They're black metal, about 1.5 inches tall. At the top is a round button that you push in and it lifts the bottom part up so you can put your hat brim into it. When you release the button it clamps down on the hat for you.
