No problem, with building a home gym homemade equipment is great for getting lots of things to play with without the costs.

Hell I take some of my homemade equipment to the gym with me (although my cousin does own it so I know I won't get kicked out).

It's for levering. You grab each handle and then in towards yourself. It will improve your forearm strength and grip strength.
