Key Features

When using the self timer or remote release it is recommended to remove the viewfinder eyepiece cup and attach the DK-5 eyepiece cap.
This will prevent light entering the viewfinder from affecting the exposure in auto exposure modes.
DK-5 Eyepiece Cap 5 5 1 1
Remote & Self Timer Mode... I thought this would be a useless accessory until I read in the user manual: "[When taking photos without your eye to the viewfinder, remove the DK-20 rubber eyecup and insert this DK-5 eyepiece cap to prevent light entering via the viewfinder interfering with exposure.]"--- If you switch to live view I think DK-5 has no function because the mirror in the camera flips and blocks out light from the eyepiece anyway.

Answer: 
The viewfinder is the tiny window that you look through with your eye when you put the camera up to your face while taking a photo, or in other words so you can 'find' what you want to 'view' in the photo. You have to remove the eyepiece prior to putting the DK-5 attachment on your camera see related product I've selected...

Is there a specific purpose for the clip on the DK-5? My best guess is to clip it on to something when you need to temporarily switch to the viewfinder, such as an article of clothing, but I'm curious if it has a specific intent behind it.

Answer: 
The Nikon DK-5 eyepiece cap is a shield that prevents interference during long exposures from stray light when your eye is not behind the viewfinder. When using the self timer or remote release. Remove the viewfinder eyepiece cup by sliding it up and attach the DK-5 eyepiece cap
