    Comments about Shims - Wedgies:

    These are perfect for those little jobs where I just need a shim (or two to help me. They are perfect because I know they will not rot like a piece of wood.I can place two or more of them together and drill holes through them to anchor them. They are resilient. I use them for smaller jobs. I wouldn't use them for jobs that would put my safety at risk.

            Tore out all the carpet in my house recently because it was old and nasty. As a result much furniture is wobbly on the concrete slab until we put down new flooring. These little wedges are the perfect thing for fixing the problem, and being translucent don't stand out against the floor. Interlocking ridges on the pieces make them stackable and give them staying power.

              I purchase a lot of stuff from Duluth; sometimes I feel like a fashion model for the company! But these little wedges have been a life-saver for some of the projects that I have that just need that little "shove" into place.

                These things work great. We just finished painting the interior of our house and of course had to use folded up pieces of paper and cardboard to get everything we moved leval again. Then I saw these things and ordered them. All the paper is out and these are in. Very easy to use and they can be trimmed very easily. They are also useful for fixing little rattles in the car by wedging them into the offending places. They are miles ahead of the wooden ones too. I am very pleased with them.

                    I've looked for these in the big box stores, but could only find the usual wooden shims. I've used the Wedgies in the past and was very happy to find them at Duluth Trading.

                      We use these to secure pressure-mounted dog gates in sloped doorways, to level furniture, to cushion the slam of doors and to balance the washing machine -- so far. We no doubt will find other uses. No more matchbooks!

                        I didn't know I needed these until I stumbled upon them in your catalog, but I've been amazed at how may uses I have for them. We have used them to secure pressure-mounted baby gates, stabilize the dryer, silence a squeaky bed frame, and cushion the china we pack away. These will be stocking stuffers for family members this Christmas.
