Fer-a-loup

See also: Fer-a-loup in Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry.

A curved piece of metal with a loop, used as an anchor for a wolf trap.

In German heraldry it was also known as a "Wolfsangel,” although that name can also refer to the hook that would be attached and baited, which we would blazon a crampon.
