Looking at the first pic,imagine the long bar or handle lying along the top of a floor joist,the two pins would be either side of the joist and turning the screw would push a warped T&G board tight to the next one,never seen one before so only guessing.

Looking at it again i think its facing the wrong angle to push T&G together,it would need to sit on a noggin between the joists so i'm wrong.
