Package states that "each spacer is 1/8". However, this is not true. The spacer thickness including the pegs appears to be exactly 3/16" and the segment thickness alone appears to be exactly 3/32". This is important to know because for my application one spacer per screw was all that was needed--two devices/4 screws total. However, the pegs created too much thickness so I had to shave off the pegs from each spacer using metal files (see photo) so that both sides were flush to reduce the overall thickness. Each caterpillar strand contains eight spacers. Might I recommend that every other spacer not have molded pegs to provide more thickness options.

Great fix for recessed outlet fixtures. I had to cut off the extra plastic when I separated the tabs, but still a great easy fix for outlets (once I watched a youtube video to see how to complete the job).
