These things are not really needed. I myself have rode my bike for 2 weeks at a time with a broken spoke(s) and no ill effects. There is a guy at work, his bike has been missing a back rim spoke for 2-3 years now.

Most bike rims can still ridden on if there is one or even 2 spoke failures. The secret is to easily adjust the other spokes enough if the rim is a bit wobbly. Practice on a junker rim and you should be able to adjust the spokes in no time on your bike if ever needed in the future.
