    I have a 2010 Prius, and I found these parts rattling around loose in the glovebox and trunk:

    Anyone know what they are, (besides the wooden ruler :) )? Thanks.

    one looks like a fuse puller, the other 2 look familiar but I just can't recall where. Likely should have been placed by the prep person.

    I bought this car used from a non-Toyota dealer, so they don't know.

    Oh yeah, item on far right is a fuse puller.

    The other items are almost the width of the seat belt webbing. Maybe related?

    I believe the other two are for untensioning seat belts.
