Excellent. I can always keep a half bundle in my tool bag when I manage 20+ units of rentals. I even use these to shim toilets. I know they have toilet shims that are white, but if I'm caulking around the toilet, I can use these.
Composite shims are the way to go. One should never use wood shims if these are available. Wood expands and contracts and can get soft if exposed to water and deteriorate. Termites can also eat them. These are the way to go! Screw them, snap them, cut them, whatever you need!
For only a few cents more there is no reason to ever use the wood ones again.
They don't rot
Doesn't matter if they get wet
They don't compress like work shims
They don't split when you put a nail or screw through them
They are consistent
They slide easily
They are easy to trim just by snapping
They can support a lot more load than a wood shim
only down side is that it seems to be a waste to use them to spread glue or stir paint, they again they are almost the same price as the wood ones.
Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Install, Light Weight, Multi Use, High Quality of Material, Good Shape
i wish i had seen these sooner, should be easier to find in the store

Great for potentially wet areas. They are easy to snap off but only snap off on the area of ridges and the ridges have to face away from the direction you are pulling too. In some cases, when excess hangs off, I just cut it off with a utility knife or chisel.
I have used these for window and door installs as well on on my shed foundation. I used them to shim a toilet as well. These are a must have for any area that may be wet.
