    They look like plank end plates/brackets - to stop planks like scaffold planks or ramps from splitting.

    That might be right, but the dimensions seem a little off for that, at least in the US where I think the inside would be closer to 7-1/2”.

    Concrete forming hardware. Set on top of the footing and used to control the width of the stem wall at the bottom. Plywood forms go inside the lips.

    "The OCM Walerless Plywood Spreader Cleat Form System is used when forming foundation stem walls using 3/4" plywood. The Spreader Cleats are designed for the contractor who is engaged in a variety of form work up to 32" high. On panels up to 24" high the cleats are spaced at 32" maximum center to center spacing. For panels over 24" and up to 32" high, the spreader cleats should be spaced a maximum of 24" center to center. This Spreader Cleat System is excellent for low wall conditions such as stem walls, crawl spaces, grade beams, curbing and cisterns. This system is ideal for the contractor who has a high volume of work requiring versatility, economy and speed."
