Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple but great product I am currently in the process of turning a barn built in the 1860's into a finished work space. The studs were all rough cut lumber and are extremely uneven when comparing how far out each stud sticks in comparison to the neighboring stud. This product was EXTREMELY helpful in the process of dry walling the wall and ceiling. Super easy, just stack up as many pieces as you need and nail them in then put your drywall on top. My only complaint is that neither HomeDepot or Lowes sell this product in stores so I had to order it online. This is a must for anyone with an old home who is putting up drywall. September 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 45" size is not 45" Long I saw no comments that mentioned that this product is not 45" long, but more like 43.75". The description and specs lead one to believe the strips will be 45". Maybe this is just another case of shrinking sizes, like the new supermarket pound which is now 14.4 ounces! Otherwise this is a very useful product. June 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very usefull for any drywall project This product is very helpfull for any drywall project , i have ordered these shims as i was drywalling my 900SFT basement and these shims saved time around any wood studs that are not aligned with other ones, These shims also helped to get the slight slope for Butt Joints that helps during taping an mudding.Initally i was tryiing to order RockSplicer or trmtex butt board for butt joints but they are very expensive.This shims has saved time and money these are just cardboard product but thats what required for drywall aligning.Just follow the images on the Box how they can help buttjoints and regular misaligned studs.Over all nice product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool for perfect drywall Should carry these in the store, they work great for evening out studs before attaching drywall, May 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shims for leveling This is a great product to help level out warped and out of plane studs and joists. This speeds the process of truing up framing lumber which gives you a nice flat surface for drywall and you end up with a better product. You can also use them to join end butts of drywall that meet mid span. April 23, 2014
