Can I cut down a Fernco?

Piece of pipe between two angled fittings is only 2" and I need to cut it to access the pipe. I want to use a Fernco in case I need to get in there again in the future but they are 4" long, recommendations? Can I cut it down as long as both screw clamps have enough to grab?

Can I cut down a Fernco?

not really, but you can slip it up all the way onto one pipe, then line the pipes up and slip it over so it centers over both pieces. So why the need to cut it?
