It MIGHT be something you use when doing upholstery work.  We've got 
a couple of chairs sitting (some in pieces!) in the garage, and have 
looked into this a little.  And one of the better fabric sources 
locally is also an upholstery wholesaler, so we MAY have seen similar 
tools there.

My husband thinks it MIGHT be the tool you use to tighten the 
strapping that underlies the seat cushion.  The teethy things grab 
the webbing so you can get maximum tightening.
