    Door Latching Mechanism?

    If i were to remove one of the three hooks on the door latching mechanism, would that particularly affect the door? I need to make some room for a radiator, and the easiest way would be to cut into that piece. It would be the forward most hook, if that's important

So I was wondering what if...
