I'm not sure if this was the original intent, but the indentation on this o ld Silca pump head works splendidly on a frame with two pump pegs, assuming you have a Silca pump the right length for your peg spacing. That way y ou don't have to hack off one peg to carry a "modern" pump. The frame fi t silca pumps have an indentation/hole on the handle end that works well, b ut the round handle silca pumps designed for the umbrella clips also have t he hole for a pump peg, and look better to me.
Here's my '51 Holdsworth with the pump head in question used on a double pu mp peg set on the top tube. Not focused on the pump head, but you can ki nda see it.
And here's a pic of the front peg:
It seems then these pump heads work better on pegs than on the Reg umbrella s. The only downside is that the silca pump body is wider than the old a luminum pumps. I knocked it loose from the under TT pegs on the Holdswor th a few times when my knee rubbed the top tube. A thinner pump might av oid this problem, or else better pedaling technique. If your pump is on the DT or ST, not an issue.

Jay, As Aldo showed, it is for the old Silca or REG pump heads. Here is a p ic of how I made it work on my c.1955 Torpado. Not sure if I did it right or
not. Note however, that getting a correct and snug fit was very difficult . If I set the clips far enough apart to get the compressed pump in, then it
would fit loosely and rattle around. If I moved the clips a bit closer together, then the compressed pump would not fit in between them. I was forced to add some padding in the deep pocket of the lower, REG clip, which now hold s the pump more firmly in place. Not GREAT, but very workable.

What brand or type of pump would this holder work with? I can understand the round top piece, but the bottom piece (I'm guessing it's the bottom piece) is unusual. To my eyes, anyway.
