He's implying that it will no longer be wide enough to cover the hole.
Cut it off and use a Weber or Weber knockoff 22-1/2" grill lid.
Or a 22-1/2" wok (google it, they exist).
Or something else made of metal big enough to cover the hole.
Use your imagination -- if you don't have the tools or the materials or the cash, it's by far your best ace in the hole.
