Campy Record QR skewers?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Campy Record QR skewers?

What are the little rings for that are found on the nut end of Campy Record skewers? These things look like hangers loops or something, but I can't figure out what their purpose is. I think they're found only on Record.

Thanks- :confused:

I've got a question for you. What is the difference between the curved and straight lever when both skewers are Campy record?
