Finishing up on a brake job. Just got my shim packet and 2 of these little do whackys were in the package. I know they are wear indicators but I ain't sure how to apply them? Been YouTubing and decided to ask for help from you guys.

Hugs and kisses to you both. Metaphorically speaking.... Does it matter if they go on the leading or trailing end of the pad? I don't guess it matters whether they are on the inside or not???

There is a tang in the middle. It will not come off if properly installed.
