Very good

" 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.

Fixing shims in hinge recesses
27 Feb 2012
By JPrugbyman

" 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. "

Not again
20 Jul 2014

" 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 £7? They are thin strips of plastic, that’s it. If they were a lot cheaper (£1 to £1.50) maybe they would be beneficial to the trades man but at nearly £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. "

" 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.
