The anti-rattle clips in the 2pots fit between the pads ears and the caliper bracket. They sometimes make it a pain to snap the pads into the bracket. They are made of thin metal that kinda looks like stainless steel. Sometimes they get left out in a re-assembly of brake calipers. The calipers will function without them, but the pads will rattle back and forth in the caliper bracket.

Just for clarity, these are not the shims that are pad shaped and snap onto the back of the pad to prevent squealing.
