When you get hit hard on the lower cage, say with a real solid shot with a shoulder or elbow, do you not feel it on the chin, through the chin cup? (Serious question because I may be underestimating their effect. I've paid more attention to the alignment and fit of the chin cup than the j clips)
If your helmet is fit correctly the helmet should not move when you get hit and your chin should not be fitting snug on the chin cup.
