Default Help to ID clip found in battery box

Hello, I have a 2020 Isata 3 RV build on the newer Sprinter chassis and I found the plastic clip below rattling around in the chassis battery box. I couldnít find where it belongs or if its even part of the batteryís system. I searched on Mercedes parts websites but I was unable to find it. Can anyone ID it and find its home? Thanks -Tom

It looks like the clip that keeps the sun visors from swiveling out to the side windows...

Cheers

Thank you Munmile and Nhuskys. I just checked, the clip you suggested is very close in size and similar in shape but is different. Iíll keep looking.

Could it be a wiper blade clip for the wash hose?

While clearing heavy wet snow off my windshield yesterday, I popped the windshield wiper nozzle off the driver side wiper arm. I had to reinstall it, and I don't think it looked like that?

I checked the washer hose, they were a completely different animal. Looked back into the battery box and if it lives there I canít find its home. Iíll keep it around and someday I might have an AHA moment.

Looks like the sun-visor clip that comes on new vehicles that has to be removed to use the visor. My dealer did not remove them, so when I went to use the visor, I had to remove them.

GLJones, Munmile, & Nhuskys,
When Munmile & Nhuskys suggested it may be a clip that keeps the sun visor from swiveling out to the side window I thought they were referring to the clip that is permanently mounted to the roof, holds the visor in place and acts as a hinge to allow the visor to fold up or down. This clip also releases the visor when you swivel it to the side window.
Are you guys telling me that Mercedes uses a temporary clip hold the visor in place during shipping? If so where were they clipped on?
Are you the GLJones that built custom muzzleloaders?
Thanks - Tom

Yes Tom, There is a temporary clip. Unfortunately, I can't remember how it was mounted but it kept the visor clipped into the permanent clip during shipping.
No, I have never built a muzzleloader, but my brother has. He just moved closer so maybe I will get to fire it.
