if your talking about the little tension thing that "clicks " as you dial, then yes it is important because without it your barrel adjuster will turn and change the position of your derailleur or brake cable. Not a killer thing, but ghost shifting sucks, and brakes getting loose are a pain.

I used tape on mine until I had to get a new cable. The clip isn't so important , but holding position is.
