strange orange plastic thing fell out of my new mg2522 printer and pg-243 question


I'm new to Canon printers..... and when I was taking the tape off my new printer there was a strange orange plastic odd shaped thing that fell out... I found no indication of what it was for... maybe it was just something for packing while shipping?  It has T1-1 and >PS-HI< imprinted on it.......

Also, the pg-243 and 244 ink cartridges seem to have a piece of dark scotch tape applied to the electrical contacts and the ink output slot but it looks like the contacts and slot itself are not covered.... is this normal?  I'm inclined to leave the tape in place.

Thanks, Orren B
