Mystery bits

After our latest excursion, Leslie found these two bits up against the gasket inside the door to the trailer.

Anybody recognize what they might be from? The 'o-ring' is hard plastic, not rubber.

Baglo, maybe those bits fell off an item you brought into the trailer and possibly placed near to door inside?? Is the "C" ring metal? It looks like a shaft keeper and may be from a vacuum cleaner or small powered appliance..??

I think the c ring is also plastic.
The replacement lockset is on the way, and I did wonder if the parts could have come from the lock, but, it still works as expected.
Other thought was the generator ( sorry hotfishtacos ).

Hi: gbaglo... No Escape trailer worth its salt can perform properly without the round plastic whozit and the crescent shaped whatchacallit. Better make sure they get put back before you tug away again!!! Alf

Well, I did pick up a rectangular shaped piece of plastic from the ground. And, put it in my pocket. Later, I noticed that the pull cord on the generator didn't quite look like one might expect. The rectangular piece of plastic fit perfectly into the handle to cover where the cord was attached. Quite proud I was.
But, these bits are a real challenge. I've checked the chairs, had a look at the generator, nothing seems to be missing.
If somebody does figure it out, maybe they can help me find my Lamy ballpoint pen that I've had for some 10 years. I've searched everywhere.
