I found a good use for it yesterday ...
I was in an area with massive toxic gas clouds.
The Mage Hand (from Laezel) is not harmed by the gases.
Oddly enough, it also did Perception checks to spot the source (hole) where the poison gas comes from, which of course does not make sense, but it is currently implemented like a summon with Perception, like a short term Familiar.
It found the hole and I also used it throw a metal object to block the hole. Laezel was happy to avoid the damage.
nb : otherwise, it is an extra shove in BG3, which is OP and way beyond 5e rules (in which it cannot lift more than 10 lbs and it cost an Action in combat to use it! So, on the tabletop, it is mostly used out-of-combat to move things, trigger traps, at a safer distance).
