What is the intended purpose for the clips under the center console lid? To hold documents? Sunglasses? Curious about its actual intended purpose, couldn’t find anything online.

I liked that answer until I tried it. The clips are too tight to hold my glasses and the glasses fit nicely in the tray below.

You can stretch it out to fit your glasses if you wish but I don’t think that’s the actual purpose for these.

Wife made the bizarre suggestion that it’s for CD’s considering the width and the circle in the middle…except I imagine they would scratch the CDs and there are no CD slots in the car…

My best guess so far is that it’s to hold cables. I fold/roll up my iphone cable and squeeze it in under them.

Your wife gets an A for effort and imagination. And she's right, the circle must have a purpose or why bother.
Cables, Cd's, parking tickets, sunglasses.... Maybe a map holder? But who uses a map these days.
Maybe there's a Korean product that is unknown most places that fits perfectly.
Wait, I know, it's a conversation piece. But then, why hide it.

I just discovered them in our 2013 Nissan Rogue and put the registration in them, I was thinking it was such a good idea. :D

I've been under the assumption for many years that you don't keep your registration in the car; you keep it in your wallet or purse.

Thanks, I'm making use of those strange clips now with important receipts, health and car insurance, title, giftcards.

Don't know about your state, but in PA your registration must be in the car whenever you are driving it. Unless you're the only driver that will ever drive the car, keeping the stuff in your wallet will be a PITA. Besides, I don't need more stuff packing my wallet when the only time I'll need it is in the car.
