The horizontal piece of metal on the upstand is for latching the switch hooks down when the case is removed.
Note the small plastic block on the base of the phone, to the left of the orange wire.  If the base was used on a CB Telephone (i.e. no dial) then the pink and orange dial wires were terminated under the small screw and the blue, brown and grey dial wires were each pushed into one of the three holes.
