If your hydraulics are functioning properly, you need do nothing. If the plow drifts down after running for a while, you have a leak, and need to address it. If you drop a plow on the road it won't penetrate, just annoy you as metal wears off. All the stuff about the plow rotating up, and hitting you in the head, is WHILE plowing dirt, with upper links that WON'T release. Do not wire up the top links, you want them to disconnect, as they were designed to, if the lower link disconnects!

The older plows didn't work off the snap coupler clamps they slid on the arm and were held by a pin

I know what a hidden pin hitch is. He didn't say which type plow he has. Another poster said to wire up upper SC arms, so they won't open, in the event of a disconnect, at the bottom. The real danger, is converting a pin hitch coupler (at the bottom), but not changing over the top, too. Or wiring the upper snap couplers closed!

I always liked to put a safety chain on the tongue of the plow regardless.
