Large Piece of metal rattling around battery compartment in 2014 GC

I was finally able to figure out what this rattling metal sound was that I have had for about a month in my 2014 Grand Cherokee that has been driving me crazy. Now the question is what is it and where did it come from. The piece of metal below was just lying in the bottom of the battery compartment and slide around whenever I braked or accelerated. Looks like a large clip or retainer of some type. Anyone have any ides what this is or where it might go? I didn't see any obvious place that it may have fallen off of. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

I thought a little while back someone else found one of these and Marlon said it was a clip they use at the factory but doesn't go in the Jeep. He said they had bins of them lying around.

Really? hopefully maybe he will see this and confirm. The strange thing is the paint on the side of it is scratched as if it has been in use moving back and forth or something. Is black same color as the GC. its not a little thing either it is pretty big. thanks for the reply

Marlon said it's a temporary door striker used before the permanent ones are installed. Here's the thread.

Where did it come from?
