Looks like an expanding collet - good for clamping inside bores. It also looks like your lever collet closer is missing some pieces, but I'm not sure. Usually the lever sticks out horizontally.

Yeah the bracket in the back isn't hooked up, didn't feel like unbolting the door to install something I don't think I'll use

The hole (at the "top" of the lever must be in a pivot, to apply/release pressure on the collet to close/open it. It appears that when tightening the collett, it (the collett) would expand inside a cavity. In general, collets contract about a diameter.
Thanks for the images.
