Broadfix Quick Align Hinge Shims Small 100 x 1 x 35mm Pack of 15
I have been replacing 14 doors but needed to use the original hinge positions on door frame.
Some of the original rebates were deeper than required and these shims allowed me to pack to the exact depth needed. Much better than trying to build up with other packing material as they are consistent and simple to use. Given 5 star on reliability without really knowing how they will perform long term but can't see how they would fail.

Quick Align Hinge Shims
These shims are an effective way to align the doors without having to keep making fine adjustments to the frame!

I usually use card packers but thought I'd give these a punt. Their only unique feature, as far as I can tell, is that you can pack the hinges whilst the door is still attached. That's it. With skill, you can do that anyway with card.
Considering what they are, why do they cost nearly Â£7? They are thin strips of plastic, thatâs it. If they were a lot cheaper (Â£1 to Â£1.50) maybe they would be beneficial to the trades man but at nearly Â£7 I think they are only intended for the DIY market and therefore the occasional user.
Please note, if your hinges are not 100mm these shims will not work and they cannot be easily adapted, if at all.
