    Help me identify this spring/clip

    Hi All! I removed my rear wheel yesterday and heard this thing hit the ground. Not sure if it belongs on my bike or not. Thought it could be a caliper/brake pad spring (Shimano BR-M315) or something for the rear derailleur (SRAM NX 11 speed), but maybe not...any ideas?

    Help me identify this spring/clip-2019-01-06-15.53.44.jpg

    Brake pad me thinks.
    Wanted, SRAM GX 2x11 rear derailleur

    It ain't supposed to be easy.

    Not for a Shimano brake it isn't. I don't recognise it.

    Maybe a cable retaining clip?
    How big is it, we need some scale.
    Possibly already on the ground?

    Brake pad spring was my first thought too, but the spring is still there and different than this.

    Who knows, could have been laying on the garage floor and I mistakenly assumed it came off the bike.

    Only about 6mm tall. Definitely could be unrelated to the bike.

    I'm going with that.

    Do you have braces on your teeth? Maybe you sneezed real hard?
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    It looks like a tension clip for a paper binder.
