Re: What is these fore?

There's no need for anything like that on a D3500, no damage can occur if the teleconverter is attached correctly, the D3*00 series don't have an AI linking tab.

It will, however, not be compatible with any AF-S or AF-P lenses, as the aperture would be at it's smallest (highest number) and the view through the viewfinder would be very dark.  All the other auto-functions would also be out of action, the camera would have to be set to full Manual mode, and manual focus would not be much fun and shutter speeds would probably be very slow.

It might work a bit better with a lens with on-lens aperture control, such as AF-D or the older manual focus lenses, but if OP doesn't already have one I doubt it would be worth buying one.
