- Hi guys! What do you call the black iron semicircle? What is it used for?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know the technical term for that spiked semicircular steel object, but I do know that its purpose is to bar anyone from trying to get round the end of the object it is attached to.

You typically find them being used to make the end of a wall or fence that runs up to a river, canal or railway line impossible to get round, thanks partly to the spikes and partly to the fact that the lower part of the object offers no support for hands or feet.
