Default What is this wire with the piston rings?

Hey, I've been wondering what this thin, flat, bent wire is that came
with the MRP 70cc cylinder kit that I had. I had no idea what it was
and none of the guides I had seen mentioned it, so I left it alone.

Here is a picture of the rings and the wire. Anyone know what this is for or
how to use it?

It usually goes in the ring groove before the ring.

I would leave it out. Just something less to get loose in the engine.
