the low or short edge goes to the outside and the high side toward the
inside. If you look at the door cover you will see that in order to seal
off water the edge of the lid can only go into the short side with the
high side keeping the water out. Damm I hope this is clear to you, it
sounds real confusing to me. Good Luck. "FT"
