Default What is the black thing on the bottom of most hi-hats? Swivel base/tension?

I feel like an idiot asking this, but I'm going to finally man up and ask.

I have a Ludwig LM917HH hi-hat stand, and just above the footboard there's this black plastic thing that screws up and down. What is this thing? Is it the tension setting? I know this stand has a "swivel-base" but I'm not really sure what that means either.

You can see it in the pic on Ludwig's site: http://www.ludwig-drums.com/hardware/hihatstands.php

Many thanks.

Got it, thanks! And so does the Swivel Base just mean the stand's legs can swivel 360 degrees?

they swivel so you can get it next to your slave bass pedal or just set up easier
