CUTTING TO LENGTH:
If the hinge must be cut shorter, cut only one end, using a hacksaw.
The hinge should be in a closed position, either on its side with the cap closest to you or with the cap standing up, so the saw cuts through the cap first.
If you cut off one of the set screw bearings, reinstall it on the hinge.
The hinge must be installed with the cut end on the bottom. This allows any metal chips or shavings to work out after installation.
