Bag of Screws/Plastic Parts

My new 2017 Limited came with a small plastic bag of screws and some circular plastic parts. I have no clue what this is for. They're in the glove compartment.

I know it's a dumb question from a newbie but any help is appreciated.

I did read that some 2015 Outbacks were shipped with black vinyl/rubber plugs NOT INSTALLED in the rocker panels as they should have been. The dealers were supposed to check this in their normal pre-delivery inspection.....look under the car's rocker panels and you may see a hole just ahead of the rear wheels........if so, a plastic plug is supplied to close this opening up.

Not aware of screws, however....

Did you order anything that was dealer-installed? Rear seat protectors, for example? Some of those accessories include hardware for installation. It might be that there was an extra bag of fasteners and it was tossed into the glove box.

There might be a part number or label on the bag.

They're for your license plates - plastic caps dress up the otherwise naked screws. I think I threw mine in the trunk.

No nets. I also did not have the dealer install any accessories.

@tdcolby for the win.

I tossed mine since I always mount my plates with either stainless screws or nylon bolts and nuts. Prevents the rust stains on really old plates. (In Massachusetts our plates stay with the driver and are swapped onto a new car and can last for decades.) Traumatized years ago trying to get an old plate off of a 10-year-old Toyota pickup with absolutely rusted solid regular hardware at the dealer waiting to pick up my new car. Learned a lesson ... just like the lesson of not rotating your tires and finding the wheel absolutely frozen to the hub while trying to change a flat on the side of a highway, in the rain, at night, in the winter.
