Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Different size made sense.
I ordered this width and length to finish a block job. This size would have been better to start with considering I needed 15 & 1/2 inch lengths. The grove down the middle held the block in line just fine and the block I used it on was high enough there is no pressure against them, so width wasn't needed. The wider spacers were the only size showing for my first order. They ended up with about 13 inches of waste on each strip which ran me short. Was able to cut them and use for vertical pieces.

Easy to use. Provides a stable guide to build a wall. Unfortunately, the 3rd box only contained 2 pieces. Ordered total of 18, only received 14. Nice product, not so nice receiving less than we paid for and being short on completing the project.

These do help evenly space the block and (if the central groove is engaged with the blocks' central ridge) help strengthen the wall. If you need to space your blocks further apart horizontally to fit the rough opening, try putting a shim inside the spacer to fatten it. The price is exorbitant at $3/stick (for PVC plastic!?). You will find that accessories like spacers, channels, etc. are about as expensive as the block. However, Home Depot seems to have the best prices and free shipping is greatly appreciated. Thank you HD. I wish the spacer sticks were longer than 31.5". I waste a couple of inches on each stick when I cut them up for vertical spacers (with sheet metal shears). A multiple of 7.5" (like 37.5") would make sense. It's gonna look good when I'm finished.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 54321 Stickers!!
Each spacer had a bar code sticker that was difficult to remove. Removal damaged the spacers. There was no need for the stickers to be on each piece, since the spacers are sold by the carton, and the carton has a sticker. The stickers required the use of both a heat gun and lacquer thinner to remove.

Easy to trim, easy to work with, works great in re-enforcing the 3" glass blocks as stated.
