Can anyone tell me what these are?

Greetings my friendly Oldsmobile fanatics! Right after I bought my Cutlass I was cleaning out the glovebox and found these.
Can anyone tell me if they are a legitimate part, and if so, what are they and what do they do?


Thanks,
Dave

They are "keys" to un-lock a newer model (90's up) radio for removal from the front .

Whuuuut? Every 90's series car, and 2000+ I've just removed the valence trim pieces and then it's a matter of either a couple 10mm or 7mm bolts holding the radio in.

They slide in on each side of a radio unit between the radio chassis and the mounting sleeve. You can then pull the radio out of the sleeve.

I have a set of those in my toolbox . I was a truck mechanic and I used them to swap music radios in Internationals , Fords, and Macks . Starting in the mid ninetys .
