What is this bracket on my subfloor

Posted by Kevin Daly, on
Installing hardwood floors. After taking out carpet, found this bracket. Not sure what it's for. Squeaky board, then why not screws? Want to remove before install.

Hi Not to sure without seeing it. The only thing I can think of is that it is to support one floorboard off the one next to it due to one of the boards having no support underneath. You could remove the bracket and lift the boards and see what is going on underneath. Hope this helps.
