The random location can be used when rolling a 1 on a Saving throw or otherwise when a piece of gear risks damage. A magic item that risks damage because of a 1 on a saving roll always gets a saving throw to negate damage, having a bonus of 2 + (1/2 caster level) in all categories. If no item is carried in a specific slot, there is no additional effect.
