The main reason I advocate using the hood gaurd is that it prevents your body armor from unlocking your SLS when you sit down in the car.
Even though the ALS would still provide retention some BG is more likely to think a grab would be successful if he sees your SLS is unlocked and you are not aware of it.
and crap, while looking at mine to answer your question just realized my hood guard is broken. Looks like the plastic cracked at one of the holes where the screw passes through. Just ordered another one.
