It's not a tool, it is merely a chamber plug similar to a zip lock tie to visually confirm the weapon is not loaded. Throw it away in your garbage. :biglaugh:
If you are just going to toss it pm me. I may be interested it getting it off your hands.

If it is inserted in the chamber and then the slide is closed on it, it is intended to verify that the chamber is empty. Some ranges require a visual empty chamber indicator when th eline is COLD.
