It is designed to snap onto the 110 adapter on your camera, as a replacement. Pull off the old adapter and slide this one into place. Its purpose is to seal out unwanted light from entering the camera.

It's probably a cover to put over the viewfinder when it's not used, ie when taking long exposures at night with the camera on a tripod. Since your face isn't covering the viewfinder light can get in that way and reach the film while it's being exposed.
