I believe that it can be used to pull nage off balance to the ground.

It can be used as the beginning of a more extensive attack.

But, I also think that other than being an effective attack, it can be seen as a common attack (although not by trained martial artists). It is fairly common for someone to reach out and grab your wrist in an attempt to control you.
