Quick Align Hinge Shims 100 x 1 x 35mm Pack of 15
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.

Waste of money
Very expensive for what they are, which is a thin plastic wedge. The size is not compatible with most hinges as 100mm is too big.
Just carry on using cardboard packers.

Fixing shims in hinge recesses
These shims are excellent for modifying the depth of the hinge recesses already made in doors and jambs. AN IMPROVEMENT would be to provide 2 small holes for panel pins in the shims so that the position of the shims can be maintained whilst struggling with relatively heavy doors.
