This mechanism is a leading edge Krueger flap, allowing the wing to increase the maximum lift coefficient. It's used to produce more lift at relatively slow speeds on take-off and landing. This is visible on a former Fedex Boeing 727 on display at Le Bourget Air&Space Museum. Photo (CC) FrancoisRoche.
