Where does this one-prong grounding clip go?

I am reassembling my iPhone 4S and have a small one-prong grounding clip that fell out after I removed the logic board and before I could see where it came from. It is NOT the camera grounding clip, I have that and know where it goes. It is a black rectangle 5mm x 3mm with a screw hole offset towards one side. A small 2.5mm ground prong sticks off perpendicularly from the opposite corner from the hole. any help on its location and orientation would be a huge help. I would post a photo but I can't seem to figure out how.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

5mm clip, this could be the bottom clip that covers the antenna wire cap connector at the top battery connector screw. The clip goes over the antenna cap, then the battery connector goes on, then the screw holds everything into place. The clip is at the end of the blue spudger in this photo: http://guide-images.ifixit.net/igi/PI3sC...

Brad was correct, it is the antenna ground and goes under the battery connector. thanks

Where can you get a replacement piece or is it even really needed?
