While it cannot be confirmed that this piece was removed from an H&F car, it accompanied several parts removed from H&F #172 and is of the same design as those found on H&F cars.

This hook would have been mounted to the ceiling of a trolley and used to hold the trolley pole down against the spring tension designed to otherwise keep it pressed against the overhead wire.  There would be a hook such as this on each end of the car.
