# 3130 Make Whole the Hole

Q. I received from Eretz Yisroel some Taalesim Ketanim that I requested. But they had the Tzitzis installed following the minhag of two adjacent openings and the tzitzis hanging in the front only. Since that is not my minhag and I’m unable to return them, I decided to remove the threads, and reinstall them following my tradition of only using one hole. Which of the two should I use?
A. Horav Aharon Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that in principle it does not matter. However, one should measure the distances, since one may be more correct in Halacha than the other.
Horav Yaakov Hirschman Shlit’a recommended that he should use the same (closer or further) opening for all four corners.
Others suggested to convert if possible the two adjacent openings into a single one.
