I had disengaged the chain on my C40 once, luckily no damage. I don't want that ever happen again. Checked the front derailer already. Will do anything possible to prevent.

got the chain stuck up between the small ring and the chainstay. Hacked up the carbon chainstay a bit...Luckily only cosmetic damage. Clear nailpolish did the trick but it still looks a bit messy.
I'm still not seeing this device in the picture though...Am I dumb?

p.s. don't answer that.

That is Mick Rogers' Time according to cyclingnews.com. I have checked pictures of some european races, some professionals have installed this thing. My LBS in Hong Kong has this for HK$80 (~US$10).

Yes, they are a good idea. They are cheap insurance against your chain falling off on a bad shift. They are very light and only cost $5.00 to $10.00. You can get two different types (Redline or Third Eye) from Excel.

Considering the damage that can happen on a Carbon frame when the chain drops, they are worth the weight and money.
