Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid if you can.. Just put in a door frame and had to use some shimys. Unfortunately got hold of these.. firstly there are sizes 1, 3, 5 and 6. Was desperate for a size in between 1 and 3. Had to put three size 1 together but still wasnt perfect and size 3 was just too thick. Secondly they do not break like in the video, oh no... had to fiddle for a while to break them but then they got all loose in the crack as you need to stack a couple together to get the size you need dont you... Ended up cutting them with a saw which left torn up edges.. a nightmare. Would not recommend and will not use again. Probably will bin the whole bag. Overpriced too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good set of packers. These are great packers. Always keep a bag in the van - very useful for packing battens, door frames & studs. They do seem expensive for a packet full of thin strips of plastic though. I suspect it has more to do with utility than cost of manufacture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I manage without? Having reached a certain age, messing about making my own shims is no longer an option assuming you have the right sized stuff in the first place, far better to spend the time doing what I want.. Had to put up a new fence (thanks Dennis!!!!) and these were exactly right for the fine tweeks to level the whole thing properly in the post spikes. Well impressed and with the colour coding makes it so easy to identify the size needed to suit. Will be in prime place in the tool box from now on. The old peasant.

Adjusting a door hinge

Has anyone used these to adjust the hinges on a wooden door that has now dried out and shrunk after being altered by planing excess wood from the door itself ? If so was the job a success ? Thanks

Could these shims be used to raise a decking frame off the floor to allow water to run underneath?

Asked by: Pete7596
Yes, these packers are made from 100% polypropylene, therefore will not rot or swell under the pressure of water, and are tested to withstand 2.5KN.

What size are these?

I can see the thickness, but not the other dimensions
Asked by: ConfusedNeil
Hi, The small are 55 x 43mm and the standard are 101 x 43mm. They then come in varying thicknesses from 1-6mm and 10mm. Trust this helps.
