36 in. Drywall Shims is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why aren't these stocked? I just purchased another box. I am remodeling my 110 yr old house, which is balloon framed with rough cut oak. Nothing is level since they used plaster in the old days and it didn't matter. After stopping at every lumber yard and diy box store I found these in an article and Home Depot had them for order only. Greatest thing ever. Finished my sons bedroom and am using them for the kitchen now. Only complaint is waiting a week for them instead of in store. Should be stocked right next to the joint compound with a sign "hey, dummy, buy these, you'll never regret it"

Double or maybe even triple to get thicker adjustment. Attach to studs with a stapler (a Dewalt stapler like DWHTTR350 that is in stock in the local H.D. store works well).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the job I'm a DIY'er and am rebuilding our master shower as part of our bathroom renovation. I decided and had already purchased "1/2 inch" Hardibacker cement board, only to find out that it's not quite a true 1/2 inch, but a little less. This was causing problems where the Hardibacker was not meeting up flush with the bottom of the existing sunken shower walls, or with the rest of the regular 1/2 inch drywall outside of the shower. Straitflex shims are sturdy, easy to cut and staple, and are exactly 1/16 of an inch apiece, which allowed me to stack them easily on my existing studs to bring the Hardi up flush to the other surfaces. MY ONLY COMPLAINT: These things should be stocked at the store! Had to wait for them to be shipped to my house. Otherwise, the product is excellent and was a lifesaver. The big box of 100 shims was plenty enough for both of our bath renos.
