Great plastic shims
11 Aug 2014
By Jokerman
, Middlesex
"Great plastic shims, used them for my decking and new kitchen. Will come in handy when I hang a few doors as I can use the shims to hold the door 2 or 3mm off the floor whilst screwing the hinges to the frame."

Great Shims
8 May 2014
By gill4711
, Llanelli
"My Husband wanted these for him yo finish off the shed when fitting the door and windows.....although the pack size could do with being a little smaller for D.I.Y users they are well worth the money for the quantity in the bag and made the job quite a bit easier than not having them."

"Good mix of sizes and lengths, don't be fooled into thinking you can hammer them into a tight space to pack something out, they will break!
Used properly, great product

Easily trimmed to length with scissors for 1mm and junior hacksaw for thicker sizes."

A solid product
15 Mar 2012
By CAFC79
, Rochester, Medway, K
"I'm not a tradesman, just a casual DIY'r.
I bought thees to help with hanging some cupboards in the office at work as the wall wasn't flat at all and one side needed spacing out a fair bit.
I found them really easy and simple to use. I wasn't initially sure how they would hold up, but the cupboard is there, still strong on the wall.
The fact that there are so many different thickness ones and you can double them up to get just the right thickness is great.
It's given me confidence to have a crack at fitting some new unit's at home now as these made the job much easier than having to cut up bits of wood to space pout the back of the units."

good product
30 May 2014

"product is great but It would help if screwfix could offer either short or long packers or a 50/50 mix would be better, this ratio of the mixed pack is not equal and then running out of the standard size quickly."

Handy spacers

"Great selection of spacers for all those odd fits.
I actually bought them to use as wedges to remove a corroded item from a fragile surface by applying a even and increasing force all round and being plastic they didn't damage the surface !

This bag gives a large selection and are easy to trim and fix in place. Saved me a lot of time and frustration."

Not as good as they used to be
8 Jun 2012
By Gazooks
, Essex
"Now the first pack of these I bought a couple of years ago were fantastic. I don't know if the manufacturer has changed but these ones just aren't the same. They are too brittle and if you catch them wrong with your hammer, they splinter into a thousand pieces. On a positive note, they do come in various sizes and you get a lot of them. However I agree some earleir reviews. Tad expensive considering the quality, and it would be nice if they were in a box."

Very poor quality
6 Sep 2011
By XVen
, London
"Simple fact - the product not designed for expected usage. Easy to place as a straight forward wedge, but if you need to tap lightly in to a tight gap - something one would expect to be able to do (!) - the things simply disintegrate.
Not recommended!"
