New: Take Part in the May Giveaway for a Change to Win the Thruster 27.5 Retrograde BMX Cruiser Bike


Part Identification Challenge
#1
I brought my new bike in for it's maintenance and when taking it out of the trunk, I noticed this piece. It could be nothing important, but maybe someone more familiar with bikes and bike parts could help. Any advice would help.

It's about a half in. wide and 1/3" tall, glossy black.

The 2nd picture has small teeth on the inside.

I have a Trek Fuel EX 5.
