Weird. It looks slightly pinched in spots but a bit open at the very top. Given that you can insert the long post so far, I would cut that post shorter and use it without worry. Three things to do: measure the “minimum insertion” length and make sure that you leave at least that length for insertion in the frame after cutting; chamfer the bottom edge of the cut post; use plenty of grease when you put it all back together.
