    ID this item found at bottom of pool

    I inspect my pool every day and found this at the bottom. Just vacuumed 2 days ago and did not notice it, but can't say for sure if it was not there or not. Pool is screened in, so this had to be brought in, not flung by a lawnmower, droped by a bird, etc.

    I've checked all the pool toys the kids play with, the manual vacuum, brush, the patio furniture, and the pump / filter system. Nothing else enters the pool area. Looks like some kind of clip.

    Its about 1/2" square. Can anyone ID this? TIA.[attachment=0:1w06y3hq]100_4017.jpg[/attachment:1w06y3hq]

    Looks like part of an adjusting mechanism on goggles or a mask maybe?

    That looks like a glass retainer clip. See this web page.

    Is it made from hard plastic or rubber?

    Its made of hard plastic. The only thing out there with glass is the table and the clips on it are of a completely different style. Not from a mask, at least not any of ours. Last time someone other than my kids were in was a week ago and I can't believe I missed it that long. But next time he is here I will check.

    Still looks like a glass retainer clip to me. I am not sure how old your kids are, but my youngest son picks up anything he find remotely interesting and puts it in his pockets. I find all sorts of stuff in his pants and swims suits pockets. Especially when we go to the river to float.

    It looks like it may be the non-skid part that is on the bottom of those plastic chairs.

    I agree, I added some inexpensive plastic chairs from the local home center last year. I found something very similar, and it took weeks before I figured out that it came from the bottom of those chairs.

    Maybe a clip from the screen enclosure?

    Not from the furniture or the screen enclosure. I've checked everything. Oh well, just another one of those things that drives me crazy other than the wife.

    Odd. Seems to be a piece of a longer strip of teeth like that. Make sure it's not part of your vacuum.

    I gotta say it looks like a piece off of a toy.
