It fits into the striker pocket, and stops the striker bolt from actually touching the stainless steel striker pocket.

It's shaped like a 90 degree angle and is about 1 1/2 inches long.

When installed, you cannot see it unless you look deeply into the striker pocket.

I found it on VTS but does it go inside the striker plate?

There was not an old brass anything there when I replaced the badly worn striker.

That brass plate stops the striker bolt from wear, and mounts on the back side of the pocket.
