How do you measure fully?

I am aware of one instance where a builder (who I won't name and it wasn't me) had the pins extend just through the frame. The door flexed and opened. Fortunately, the pilot didn't get rattled and there was no incident.

I would recommend 1/2" to an 1" to prevent any flexing of the door to be problematic.
