The real risk is that the slide would move enough to go out of alignment and not seal properly. Not good, but not catastrophic.
Their are lots of things that happen and you don't hear of it, Lots of different things in life have safety equipment and you never hear of what it did prevent or if anything did happen because safety equipment was not used. If locks are given and a place to install then I am going to use them. What your saying is pure bull gee I never had a fire in my house so why should I have smoke detectors in it? what your saying may let someone think well he is right so I am not going to use mine and then something happens,so if you choose to not use them so be it
