|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.
