Will this spindle fit 1 1/2" thick door ?

A home owner from St. Thomas, Ontario says:
Hi:
This is the exact lever kit I need, but when I bought a similar one at a local hardware store, the spindle was meant for a 2" inch thick door and could not be cut, so it wouldn't fit. Can your spindle and the lower lever for the locking/key mechanism be cut/shortened to this customized length I need ? Thanks.

The 40-160 comes with an assortment of spindles for different storm door thicknesses.The dead bolt lock comes with a break off spindle which can be broken with the use of two sets of pliers. However, you may not need to buy anything more. I'm wondering if you could cut the spindle of the one you already purchased to the proper length with a hack saw.
