simple 1/2" chuck question

Gary B. in Central NY
>Ok, so I got a present from Lee Valley today for my lathe, a 1/2" drill chuck with morse taper adapter. Now, I noticed in the Catalog, it says " Drilled and Tapped for a 1/4x 20 restraining rod, not included" Is this something I need?!? what is it? it seems that the chuck is tapered to fit the adapter ok, but I'd rather be safe than sorry......Thanks for the heads up
