Probably a little as it is more weight on the lid. But basically it is a wedge, that allows the lid to be more open and still latch..
What I have seen in person is it looks like it is open all the time. It is locked but allows someone to grab and yank. and break off latches if they really want in.

How much extra stress does that put on the lid hinges? They show extensions for the latches but nothing for the hinges.
It appears that he pushes hard to close the lid which means it is putting a lot of upward pressure on the hinges. I also agree that someone could just yank on the edge and end up cracking the lid.
A lot of money for an expensive repair down the road.

I notice they don't show you a good side view in their videos. Wouldn't be something I'd want to put on my Wing.

The videos do not show it but the 2 pictures that I got off the internet show the regular on a blue bike and the XL on the red.
