Why the hinge?

Just wondering why the rock guard has a hinge.

So that you can also open the front window, should you want just fresh air.

I think he's referring to the "segment protector" - not the front window stone shield.

They can also be used as air brakes when you're heading downhill too fast.

I hope the border people don't see this. I'll have to open the damn things every time I cross the border to show them I don't have fruit stashed in there.
