Any one use the Dillon powder check on a Hornady LNL AP?

I like the idea of a noise when or if there is a problem with the powder charge. So has anyone fitted the powder check on a LNL AP press and if so what did you have to do?

No, but I am using a RCBS Powder Check die on a Lee Classic Turret press.

I use Hornady's "Powder Cop" on my LnL
Works as advertised but you do have to watch the rod - if you get going too fast or lose concentration it is useless unless you make the effort to actually see it go up and down.

Nothing is truly foolproof if a fool is using it!

I saw somewhere a guy made a conversion to the dillon powder check on a LNL. He had to cut a notch in the frame,(top) of the LNL to accommodate the "foot" that makes the die work. So it CAN be done, but I would imagine it would void any warranty.
