Sometimes, the person causing the damage is a thief or a vandal.
The main point here is that you don't necessarily have to buy everything that comes with a glove compartment. If just the latch, lock and bin are damaged but the hinge is fine, you can save $10 by omitting that - so this article perhaps just saved you some money.
