    Hmm I must have cut it off without thinking about it when I assembled mine. Don't remember a red tag.



  • The hinge has a red plastic lock to keep it closed while tightening the bands during installation. it comes off without cutting as I recall.

    The tag says something about do not remove blah blah.. Mine is still on there and it's rather ugly.

    I'll def cut it now that I've seen what it did to your gasket Kristinn
