What is THAT?

It's time for another installment of What is THAT, the series where we post a picture that neither Tara nor I, with our decent levels of expertise can for the life of us identify, and open it up to guesses (serious or spurious) in the comments section. Here's today's contestant:

Hailing from a drawerful of junk in the cellar, our contestant is part of a very large family, all identical, all of whom also lived in that drawer. Our contestant is entirely made out of metal of some sort. Measurements: four or five inches in height, pretty much flat, and about three-sixteenths of an inch thick.

Any ideas? Keep in mind it may very well be upside-down.

I'm afraid we have no prizes, not even a case of Turtle Wax (Dad never bothered about the appearance of any car, so, that's one thing he actually didn't hoard). Sorry.

Seat belt anchor point? (just a guess)

Probably for a lock, turn it 90 degrees. A loop could go through that slot to put a pad lock on and the three holes would be for screws to secure it with. For a fences gate?

It looks like a trunk strap guide.
Screwed to a wooden trunk, it would hold a leather strap in place, even when unbuckled, on the front of the trunk.
