"This section lists related documentation *that* you may find helpful."

"This guide assumes *that* you have a basic understanding of..."

"Ensure *that* the hood is securely fastened."

** I don't think I've ever seen a *that* waived after *ensure*.

It could be omitted from the first two sentences (though each
of them uses it differently), but I think that, as used, it's
helpful in strengthening the obviousness of the sentence
structure.
