Brake Pad Questions??????

Changed the rear brake discs and pads other day with Britpart parts, on the back of the pads were these metal plates which made the pad too wide to fit the callipers. They only covered half the pad so I removed them.

Questions are, are they important? Do they do any thing? Am I wrong to remove them?

But as you can see I have glued them together to fashioned them into a keyring, (patent pending), which I may start selling if there is enough interest.

I thought that Les but they only cover half the pad resulting in the pad pushing on the disc at an angle.

Even with the pistons fully retracted these metal plates made the pad too wide, even too wide for the calliper, I had new discs as well by the way.
