I was using my new Pittsburg 3 Ton low profile floor jack on my 2017 civic ext on the front drivers side lift point and about 1/3 of the way up I heard a crack and found these two pieces on the ground. Maybe it was something in the packaging of the floor jack? I looked under the car and didn't see anything damaged or missing. I also looked in the jack manual and didn't see this piece in the parts diagram. It has a number "2" on one side. Any thoughts on what it is?

Is it possibly a piece that holds the arm back for shipping? I watched some videos and it appears they used to use a wire for this purpose. Mine definitely didn't have that wire.

Pittsburgh? You should have gotten the Daytona ;)

It definitely looks like some kind of packing piece and I doubt there's any issue with it being gone.
