The patent is for a tension-adjustable ratchet pawl which would slip when the strain reached a pre-determined limit. The patent shows the principle applied to both open-end and box-end wrenches.

The specifications describe this in use tensioning rods in bridge trusses, straining rigging on sailing vessels, or as a dynamometer.
