What is the cord for?

The keychain shown in this ebay listing
has a loop of cord, fixed in place to the steel semi-circle. The "trolley" part of the keychain slides freely up and down the cord, which passes through two separate holes in either end of the flat trolley piece. Is there any practical use for this, or is it just for fun?

There are no other moving parts or latches or anything. I keep thinking there's some trick to "fix" the trolley in place in order to make a certain-sized loop, but I can't fathom how you would do that or why.
I feel like I have been outsmarted by a Disneyland souvenir. Please advise.
