When i bought my '09, there were some things in my lower glove box & center console that i have no idea what they are used for, they are still in the clear plastic sealed envelope today

the T handle is likely for the full center console shifter, that is the only place they used them

Thanks.

It's not the shifter.
It is about 5" flat across the top, a tube like thing in the middle that's 2" long and about 3/4" across.

if you have a sunroof, or in some cases power windows, this is a manual override incase of a motor failure, or a complete loss of power. There is most likely an access hole by the sunroof, or even rear power window that this will fit in and be used as a manual crank.
