Does anyone have experience with this PDL module: http://www.pdlglobal.com/data/product_documents/681M16%20Module%20Series%20Data%20Sheet.pdf

How far out does it protrude (does it look ridiculous), does the lid make it physically difficult to turn operate the switch at all, and is the lid hinge shoddy/prone to breakage?

Doesn't stick out much more than the switch - maybe 5-8mm off the faceplate cover. Looks tidy and is a good solution for protecting a switch being accidentally knocked.

They are really handy, we have one for our outside sensor light, it's also engraved 'sensor' so there is no chance of it been turned off by accident

You also get them printed with Fridge, Microwave, Sensor, Alarm, Press, blank, clear lid. About $12 each from Electrical Direct.

That was exactly my intention - sensor switch always seems to end up in the off position.
