The new chip/swipe reader: what are those little white pad things?

I got my new chip/swipe card reader in the mail today.  I'm happy!  But, in the box along with the charger, cable, reader and box there are two flat white plastic things that look like pads of some kind....  screen protectors or something.  Double sided tape pads?  What in heck are they?  I watched the introductory video that listed everything in the box and it didn't mention these things.

Hi Sharon,

These are reusable silicone pads that allow you to attach the Chip & Swipe Reader to a phone or tablet (a gecko like material). They don't leave residue and are easy to attach and remove. We were suppose to have a printed  graphic on the pad to illustrate how to use them but we ran out of time for the initial batch.

Thanks,

David

So you attach the reader to the back of the phone or tablet?  That makes sense.  Thanks!
