i think you can just get a sharp knife (i'm guessing kitchen one..?), heat it above a flame, then it should melt the plastic and cut :) not that i've ever tried it but i have heard people commenting on it ;Dx

You might be able to do it with a kitchen knife? Hmmm... Not sure.

Or some people use a soldering iron to melt the plastic?

I hope you find a way! Lucky Luna, a HH and a bin extention!

I don't think stanley knives are too expensive? That's only way I know of. Sorry to not be of much help. :)

You can heat up something and cut it, like M&M said! I did it with a nail to make holes in Rubys bin carrier and it worked great! Just be careful of the smoke coming off, gave me a bit of a headache lol :p
