45 in. Drywall Shims is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straight walls! My only negative comment is that these are not readily available in Texas. It makes no sense. None at all. Why should people have crooked walls? Ten minutes and some staples and an entire room can be squared and straightened. It makes hanging faster, taping easier and finish nicer. But a royal pain to have to order them in Dallas. Not even the building materials stores carry them. And with the amount of crooked walls out here it should be a must. Anyways enough of my rant. Hopefully one day I can go in and see them on the shelf.

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"

Very handy material..I used it to even up door frames, used between drywall/concrete board to wall studs, etc. Too bad it isn't sold in the stores and has to be ordered. I also used them to establish a temporary consistent "stop" for my tilework around the bathtub (see attached photo)
