Answer: 
you can use as many as needed. They are a little more difficult to handle than wood shims because they slide easily against one another.

Answer: 
Probably to late here but they should work fine. I've screwed many down to walls and floor, you might need to drill a pilot hole if the screw is a big screw.

Answer: 
screws and nails won't split these. I think these are easier to work with than the wood ones. Sometimes you have to snap them before putting the nail or screw through.

Should I use wood glue? I'm shimming between 2 pieces of wood, but will the wood glue stick to this or is this more like plastic so the wood glue won't stick?

Answer: 
A polyurethane or epoxy would be your best bets. They are mainly polypropylene, and there is not much that binds to it well. The most reliable way to bond polypropylene to itself is to melt them together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love these Never using wood shims again. These are so much better. Break by hand and don't split. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Much easier to trim than wood shims For only a few cents more there is no reason to ever use the wood ones again. They don't rot Doesn't matter if they get wet They don't compress like work shims They don't split when you put a nail or screw through them They are consistent They slide easily They are easy to trim just by snapping They can support a lot more load than a wood shim only down side is that it seems to be a waste to use them to spread glue or stir paint, they again they are almost the same price as the wood ones. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Shim I've ever used Its hard for be to believe I am this impressed by something as simple as a shim, however having installed many doors and windows I can say these composite shims are the best product on the market. They break as easily as promised, and are exceptionally strong, however those aren't their best attributes. The best thing about these shims is their consistency. Each shim is exactly uniform, unlike wood shims that have natural variances. No more matching up shims to get the right thickness. I know that when I grab one of these it will be exactly the same size as every other one in the pack, or the pack before, or the pack after. June 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Shims that don't rot These shims don't rot so they are perfect for outdoor projects. They are just under $2.00 for 12. November 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best shim ever! This is the best shim I have every used. Never splinters, breaks easily and evenly. Would buy even if more expensive than the old wooden ones. October 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product My bed used to moved and squeaked. I insert two shims to the uneven spots and it instantly solved the problem. And the price is fantastic! July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by location of shims Shims located side end cap next to mill works desk. Not isle 31as listed. Great for leveling toilets and bathroom vanities March 28, 2014
