Wish I had know that the bridge pieces were necessary for attaching the deflector plate. I would have ordered them at the same time.
Have not yet used the tool, but it seems to have many great features.

Saves time by not having to adjust the handle
With this accessory, I don't have to fiddle with adjusting the handle as suggested without them. Provides balanced support.

Wasn't really sure I wanted to...
Wasn't really sure I wanted to get this but after I did I am really glad I bought it. It not only comes with the bridge but as a bonus you get the backstop which came in handy the day I bought this. The bridge worked great allowing me to attach my own jigs to it to shield me from anything coming up from the saw. They sell a plastic connector that allows you to connect two Grippers for long pieces. You connect them together using this bridge. Great investment. The whole Gripper system is a great investment.

Overkill
I received these bundled with my GRR-Rippers and I see no real advantage to them unless one wants or needs to use the deflector plate (which I cannot ever see me needing or using; your needs may vary) since it provides the attachment points needed for the deflector plate.

The basic GRR-Ripper is already pretty beefy and shouldn't need any added support across its width so I see no need to distribute pressure via the bridge. The only real advantage here is it does raise the handle a bit higher which may reduce interference between your hand and the fence.

The basic GRR-Ripper actually will let one angle the handle a few degrees more than the bridge will plus one can position the handle a little further to the left or right (how much will be practical will vary on hand size; I have small hands so I can get closer to the fence than many people will.

I see claims that this makes the handles easier to adjust but I see no difference in ease of handle adjustment between using the bridge and not using the bridge. You still just use a #2 Philips screwdriver to loosen and tighten the two handle screws. With the bridge pieces installed, there is a remote possibility that one may need to shift the bridge piece to the right or left slightly so that means four more screws to adjust whereas, without the bridge installed you still need to loosen and tighten only the two handle screws to get that additional sideways adjustment.

The only part I see actually benefiting from is the push hook. Even then, I could have used parts from the Gravity Heel Kit (a knob and a T-bolt) to make my own. One is supposed to use the plastic part of the push hook as a template to make sacrificial pieces from wood but it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the dimensions for them.

I already have the bridge installed on my two GRR-200s so I probably won't bother to remove them unless I ever find them getting in my way and need to remove them, in which case I won't bother to reinstall them afterwards. Fortunately, I didn't have to pay for them.

I love the gripper but I don't love readjusting the handle as recommended, plus the bonus heel is just gravy.
