My ratchet is something that doesn't match either of the 2 specimens previously shown...Althought it IS 1 1/2" wide it has no tab, and has some other differences in that area.

My stalk is 36", not 33 1/2" (...he said with a slight swagger...) so this must probably belong with the ratchet and some other vehicle.

The stampings on the base match up, and the hook appears correct, so that's good.

Here are some more pics...I hope...

Del,
I can see what I posted may be mis-leading, allow me to clarify. I measured the hook widths at 1.5" & 2", then referred to the ratchets by the same width, once mentioning this to be approx. The ratchets have to be narrower to allow the hooks fit over. You've measured yours and it's smaller by a half inch, leading me to believe I should have annotated the picture with 1.5" and 1" if I had measured them and not the hooks.

What I was trying to illustrate in the captioned pictures is how the ratchet narrows or tapers down on the hook side of the stalk for the Squarebird. Looking at yours, its the same width on either side of the stalk, this won't permit the Squarebird hook to attach as you know. Excuse any confusion, should have measured all pieces before posting, thanks for pointing this out. can't edit the other post, see revised images attached.
