I grew up on a farm where these where used to secure the cows during milking.  No idea what anyone would use these for in a house.

I actually know what a Stanchion is, but I can't think of a quip, so I refuse to answer on the grounds that I have nothing creative or funny to say and the real answer is boring.

My first thought was exactly what Bob Crane said as my grandparents' barn had stanchions.

Then I saw Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner, Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC reference to navy ships, confirmed by my USN hubby, Dave.

Good one Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers from barns & ships to building houses!  What else do you have up your historical sleeve?

I have seen one in a barn but as others have said I can't figure out how it would be used in a house.

On the farm it is what holds a cow in one place in a dairy barn.

In ahouse, no idea

I like to use those cow stanchions to curb some obnoxious people.....May be some politicians trying to put others down?

A vertical iron bar set into a window frame to support leaded glazing, would be my guess... off the top of my head... and in no way a copy & paste from today's question.  And by no way, I mean in the same way that hillary didn't violate any laws.
