Back house replacement, little metallic part, what is it?

So basically I'm replacing my back housing and there's one little metallic part that you put above a screw that none of the guides mention. Anyone know what it is? It's basically a small metallic thing sticking out and it's supposed to be under a screw, but where?

Is it the piece of metal that sits over the camera?

I found the same little piece on desk after I finished to re-assembly my iPhone ;-)

I think we're talking about the same part.

I was watching this disassembly iPhone video on yuotube:, when at time 3.40 I realised that piece was the one that holds the camera on case with a screw.

I hope to have been useful!
