I have lost my camera's hot shoe cover, and cannot find one to replace it. I can't find any information on whether there may be any real reason to keep a cover installed.

It may have some sales Perhaps someone out there, experienced in cameras, can tell me whether there is any downside to always leaving the hot shoe contacts uncovered. I would appreciate any information on this little-thought-of subject.
