Keep in mind it's only a 2 nu yen piece of gear. Spell Lock has it's

For example, in a game last Saturday I had Wildfire out with a Sleep
and Jinx on him. I drew my Spell Lock and played it on Sleep. (Sure I
may eventually get to the second Sleep in the deck, but I have the
Spell Lock on hand now and if the second spell does end up coming up I
can just play it on Tempest.)

Wildfire then went on a run with Drake and Red Widow. The last
Challenge they hit was Chomps. Since I didn't have the Social to
sleeze the pooch, and I didn't want to just go home, I hit him with
Sleep but rolled a 3. Since the Spell Lock gave me the first casting
without turning, I was able to turn Sleep and hit Chomps a second
time. This time I rolled 5 and trashed the Challenge allowing me to
move on and grab The Initiation.
