Lightning arrestor is a bad name, Alpha Delta call them surge protectors.

Why, because they do not stop lightning, they will stop a surge from a near by strike
and ground static build up when it gets to high.

Unplugging is fine but if you unplug inside you house/shack good ol lightning still comes inside
and makes a mess. Unplug outside the shack if you can, keep lightning outside at all costs.
