basket assembly
Explanation:

http://www.plumbing-basics.com/kitchen/kitchen-sink.htm

To prevent solid waste from entering the waste lines front the sink, you can employ either a simple strainer or a basket assembly. The latter is removable and can be used as a plug as well as a strainer. Strainer and basket are installed much the same.
The procedure for installing it is simple. Putty the lower side of the flange on the body assembly and insert the body assembly through the outlet opening in the sink. Working from the underside of the sink, place the rubber washer and the locking shell over the shank of the body assembly. Screw the locknut over the threaded shank. Screw it so tightly that the flange is tight against the surface of the sink. This will probably displace some of the putty on the lower side of the flange.
Slip the washer over the top of the tail piece, and the loose-head coupling over the bottom of the tail piece. Screw the loose-head coupling to the threaded shank of the body assembly. Place the basket in the body assembly to complete the installation.
