Strike plate removal oops

I removed the front door on the 110 to replace the latches and the new ones I installed needed to have some washers taken out from the strike plate to line them all up. Easy enough. In the process of removing the strike plate I dropped the plate that has the nuts attached in the abyss of the T-support.

I can see it in there but can't get it out. Ideas on how to retrieve this?

As the old workshop manuals say, removal is the reverse of refitting..... .... Every tool box should have these

Couldn't agree more. I had to use mine with the assistance of my go pro and a flashlight for retrieval because I wasn't able to see with the naked eye. Another great trick is to get a gel form of super glue for non metallic parts. Just press into the part, count to 10, and retrieve away.

Another great tool is the smallest Gorillatorch. You can laydown a beam of light on every nook and crevice. This works where a shop light or head torch does not. Magnetic feet as well.
