Light strip plus - cut points / alternatives?

i bought a hue light strip plus V4 (2M), with the intention of installing it inside a cabinet to light the inside of it.

unfortunately i’ve now seen that the cut points are not in any places that can suit the installation.
ideally i was looking to make the first cut at 50-57cm in, create a gap/join, and then another section of 50-57cm. the cut points are nowhere near these points (either too big or way too small).

any suggestions on a possible solution?

edit - oops thought this was a hue forum, but just realised is a forum for the hue essentials app.
