Where to put these?

    I have just finished the installation of EMG PJHZ passive pickups. But these two pieces are not shown or mentioned in detail in the installation manual.

    So, any hints and tips on how to put these together with the ground wiring correctly?

    Those are used to connect your bridge ground to the circuit ground. You need this since the HZ are passive pickups, and since you are using the quick connect system (which emphasizes solderless installation). It has instructions right below where you have pictured, "Attaching the bridge ground wire" (1-single black wire with a connector and a IDC connector). Essentially IIRC, connect that wire to the remaining ground terminal on the volume, the use IDC snap piece to connect that wire to your bridge ground wire.

    Thanks, that helped! I re-read the manual and was a bit afraid to do it wrong. The connector must be pressed until it snaps and I didn´t want to do it wrong the first time.
