Default New HU install depth issue - Is this common?

I'm in the middle of installing a new HU with a "TransAm" HU Mount. I'm finding that its too deep and won't fit because of the tab that held the Monsoon. Is this a common problem? I guess I could cut the plastic tab but there is also a metal tab along with it. What have others done with this?

Very common. Cut (or break) off the plastic part and bend the metal tab down so that it is out of the way.

i also remember there being a small screw securing the metal tab. It took me awhile but I was finally able to get the screw out and remove the tab all together. I also, cut the plastic piece. I think even most single to 1.5 din adapters have this step in their instructions.
