Description

Reliable and easy to use, these shims have been popular in European housing construction for over 40 years. Made from durable polyethylene plastic, they are immune to damp – unlike wood shims, they won’t swell, compress or decay.

The shims won’t split when you drive fasteners through them, and the orange shim has a central slot so you can slide it into position around a fastener that’s already in place. They can be used individually or as a pair of opposing wedges; teeth on their faces interlock to hold them securely at the thickness you set. Projecting ends are easily trimmed with a utility knife or saw. The shims are impressively robust, with a pair of the largest capable of holding more than two tons when all the teeth are engaged.

Made in Denmark.
