Default Knights Armament Rail Cover Panel

At the end of a Knights Armament rail cover panel, there looks to be a little metal curved piece. Does that serve any function for anything other than aesthetics? Thanks!

Correct.

Pushing down allows installation on to the rail and it will either lock into place when released or with a little pull upwards.

And they only lock into knights rails or others that have the cutout for the retainer tab. It won’t lock into just a regular 1913 rail cut. It’s a special cut in the rail. On my knights rails, they only lock into the ends of the rails. Nice covers though.
