I'd use that one defensively, as it says 'shield'. I'd also allow it to augment stealth or ambushes, and even hide from Uz darksense.

Erm... I think the first part of this gor a bit garbled? Unfortunately I'm now at work and can't take a look for myself, but if using it to cause an enemy a hinderance, I'd use a Simple Contest against the enemy's resistance PLUS the resistance of the required hinderance. In an extended contest, same thing I think, but the strict rules do not seem to allow causing hinderances in extended contests, just AP losses and 'Penalties' AKA Wounds.
