Eccentric Bench/Squat Hooks are a specialist tool to train and even overload the eccentric phase of your lift. Mainly used in bench press and squat it enables you to train for stronger eccentric phase control, overloading paused bench press, controlled "down & explosive up" training and many many other purposes.
Simply load your plates on, adjust the height according to the movement you are doing, and when you reach the bottom of your range of movement the weight touches the ground and "releases" from the bar.
Please note that eccentric overloading is recommended only for experienced trainers and should not be taken lightly, as it requires focus and control to handle the changes in load in the middle of the lift.
