Wobble Wedges Are Moving Away from Plastic Packaging

Wobble Wedge is a family-owned company, and here in our family, probably much like yours, we are looking for ways to reduce the amount of plastic packaging waste in our household. That means we’re making changes in our business too! We are proud to announce that Wobble Wedge is moving away from plastic packaging for our products. Last year, when we launched our rebrand, our 30-packs started coming in attractive square cardboard boxes. Now, we’re thrilled to share the next elements of the transition are ready! The Shop Shims Variety Pack is now going to be sold in partitioned cardboard boxes instead of the hard plastic container. Soon the 300-count Wobble Wedge container will also be available in cardboard.

Why Are We Transitioning From Plastic Packaging?

Plastic waste and micro-plastics are having an enormous negative impact on our environment and in our present economy, the supply chain for recycling plastic is not functioning. We feel it is our social responsibility to reduce the impact our business has on the environment for future generations. Therefore, we’re making the shift to cardboard packaging for all of our product containers. Cardboard packaging is recyclable and is currently being recycled in most municipalities, offering a more stable supply chain. Plus, the new cardboard packaging features updated graphic design and branding elements that will stand out on any shelf.

Will Wobble Wedge Shims Still be Plastic?

One obvious question may be looming in your mind; will Wobble Wedge shims still be made of plastic? Yes, Wobble Wedge shims will still be made of plastic, as we are confident that this is the best material for the job. Flexible plastic shims grip onto hard flooring surfaces without sliding and rigid plastic shims are ideal for furniture on soft flooring materials. We also know that our shims are built to last and will get used many, many times before they become waste. Wobble Wedge plastic shims won’t flex or rot if exposed to moisture or the elements, making them a durable solution to all rocks, leans, and wobbles.

What’s New with the Shop Shim Variety Pack?

We are very excited about the changes happening with the Shop Shim Variety Pack. The cardboard box is a sleek update to the cumbersome plastic tacklebox-style container. Take a look at the photo below for a peek inside the new Shop Shim box with its delightful, labeled cutouts for each of the three shim sizes.

Install Perfectly Level Stone Countertops with Wobble Wedges

Did you know that Wobble Wedges is a family owned business? Yes, in fact Wobble Wedges has been in the family for 30+ years, but still, we never get tired of hearing success stories from our happy customers. People are constantly finding new, creative ways to use Wobble Wedges to shore up the wiggles and wobbles in their lives. One happy customer recently reported back that Wobble Wedges are the perfect solution for installing level custom stone countertops. Here is what Greg, the owner of Grasso Stone & Glass, based out of Steamboat Springs, Colorado had to share about using Wobble Wedges to install perfectly level stone countertops.

Precision Required for High-End Custom Stone Countertop Installs

Working and living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado means that Grasso Stone is frequently installing custom stone countertops of extremely high end clients, visiting some of the most incredible custom luxury mountain homes in the area. Whether it is for a new build or a home improvement renovation, Grasso’s clients demand nothing but the best. This starts with the stone slabs that Greg sources for his work. Stone slabs can cost tens of thousands of dollars based on the specific stone type, quality, and size of the slab. Greg hand cuts all of his stone slabs in his shop before taking them out to client’s homes. These stones, which might look perfect to the naked eye, actually contain small natural imperfections that can cause the stone to rock or sit uneven when placed on the wooden kitchen cabinets.

Shimming the Gap with Wobble Wedges

Before discovering Wobble Wedges, Greg often used miscellaneous things from his toolbox to help shim these small gaps and imperfections between the stone and the wooden countertop. Even using at times broken pieces of razor blades to help shore up extremely small micro-gaps. Not anymore! Now armed with the Wobble Wedge Shop Shim Variety Pack Greg can choose any Wobble Wedge size that works well for the project at hand. The flexible plastic Wobble Wedge shims can be trimmed down to any size, shimming even micro-gaps between the stone countertop and the wooden cabinet bases.

“I like that rigid Wobble Wedges do not compress under the weight of the stone countertops and that they come in clear and black. They hide easily and are not absorbent if they get wet, which is an issue with wooden shims,” Greg said. “They also do not break off when being moved in or out, which can be another issue with wooden shims.”

When asked, Greg said he had found uses for all of the shims in his Wobble Wedge Shop Shim Variety Pack. As for his customers? They are none the wiser that their perfect custom stone countertops are being held in place by plastic Wobble Wedge shims. Wobble Wedges can support up to 2,000 lbs and will never slip out of place, expand, or rot when exposed to the moisture so common in kitchens and bathrooms. Anyone delivering high-end custom stone countertops should make sure they have a variety pack of Wobble Wedges in their toolbox.

Art Gallery Owner Uses Wobble Wedges to Stabilize Display Shelves and Pottery

Here at Wobble Wedge headquarters we never cease to be amazed by all of the creative ways that our customers use Wobble Wedges. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share this use-case from one of our recent customers, Julie, the owner of a pottery studio and art gallery in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Julie found a plethora of uses for the various shims in the Wobble Wedge Shop Shim Variety Pack around her gallery and studio, from stabilizing fragile ceramic pieces, to shimming enormous display shelves and equipment. If you are the owner of a creative space, take some inspiration from this studio owner and grab a pack of Wobble Wedges for all your shimming needs.

The Shop Shim Variety Pack

It all started with a Shop Shim Variety Pack, which includes Wobble Wedges in all three of our available sizes, standard, mini, and BigGap. The Shop Shim Variety Pack is the perfect starter kit for any studio and shop owner looking to have a variety of shim sizes and colors on hand. Included in each pack are 5 Standard Rigid Translucent shims, 5 Standard Flexible Clear shims, 5 Standard Rigid Black shims, 8 Mini Rigid Translucent shims and 8 Mini Flexible Clear shims, 4 single GigGap™ Rigid Translucent shims, 2 single BigGap™ Flexible Clear shims.

Stabilize Fragile Handmade Pottery

At any given moment in time there are hundreds of handmade ceramic pieces from half a dozen local artists on display in Julie’s gallery. Each piece is subject to its own imperfections and wobbles. This art gallery owner started using Mini Wobble Wedges to help stabilize pottery with imperfections or wobbles to keep all of the artwork safe on the display shelves. Mini Wobble Wedge shims are perfect for handmade pottery pieces. Use Flexible Mini Clear Wobble Wedge shims to stabilize fragile objects on hard shelving materials to keep them from slipping or shaking.

Level Large Display Shelves

BigGap Wobble Wedges and Standard Size Wobble Wedges are perfect for leveling large display shelves. These plastic shims can hold up to 2,000 pounds without slipping, settling, or sliding apart. This provided the perfect solution for art gallery owner, Julie, when she rearranged all of her shelving for a new art opening. Once she rearranged all of the shelving units in her gallery space, certain shelves rocked, wobbled, and did not sit level on the hardwood floor. Thankfully, Julie had her Wobble Wedge Shop Shim Variety Pack handy! She used Standard Size Wedges and BigGap sized wedges to level and stabilize all of the shelving in her gallery space.

Shim, Level & Stabilize Studio Equipment 

Below the art gallery, in her ceramics studio space, Julie found even more uses for her Shop Shim Variety Pack. The BigGap shims are strong and large enough to shim the enormous wooden work tables and work benches throughout the pottery studio, that sit on a sloped concrete floor. The Standard Size Wedges were perfect for keeping the cumbersome pottery wheels stable on the floor.

Level Flagstone Pavers with Wobble Wedges

Flagstone pavers make for a simple DIY patio or walkway solution. They are manageable for homeowners to install themselves as a weekend project, making them a common go-to option. Flagstone itself is available in a variety of colors and sizes, making it a suitable choice for any outdoor landscaping aesthetic. Use smaller flagstones for a brick-like look or larger, asymmetrical flagstones for an organic, natural looking walkway. Guarantee your flagstone pavers are perfectly installed by leveling uneven or wobbling stones with Wobble Wedges® plastic shims. Our patented wedges can hold up to 2,000 pounds and won’t rot or split when exposed to the elements.

Installing Level Flagstone Pavers:

The first step to installing flagstone pavers is to prep the yard surface. Any grass or plants should be removed, including the roots to prevent regrowth. Use a wide tooth gardening rake to level the dirt surface area as much as possible, removing any large rocks, roots, or sticks. Add a layer of sand and rake again to make the surface area level and smooth. Use the widest level you have available to check your consistency during the project. Now you can begin to place your flagstone pavers, making sure to nestle each paver into the surface material at least .5”. Once you have placed all of the individual flagstone pieces, walk carefully over the surface to detect any uneven stones. Use a rubber malet to push high sides into soil. Next pour another layer of sand over your new patio or walkway and use a fine tooth rake to pull it into the cracks between the pavers. This will hold your pavers in place and make for a smooth walking surface.

Fixing Wobbly or Uneven Pavers:

After your patio or walkway has some time to settle in the elements it is almost guaranteed that some of your flagstone pavers will start to wobble or will become uneven. At this stage you can use Wobble Wedge plastic shims to level and stabilize your flagstone pavers. Wobble Wedges are available in a variety of sizes and can hold up 2,000 pounds. These plastic shims won’t rot or split when exposed to rain, snow, or soil. Part of the beauty of flagstone pavers is it’s naturally inconsistent surface, which can ultimately lead to rocking and wobbling over time, especially if pavers are stacked. Use Wobble Wedge plastic shims to achieve a perfectly level flagstone paver patio or walkway.

How to Install Wobble Wedges for Flagstone Pavers:

First, take note of where the flagstone paver is moving. Where is the gap that is causing the stone paver to move? Once noting the location of the gap, carefully use a trowel to remove the stone paver from the soil and sand. Use one or multiple plastic Wobble Wedge shims to fill the gap area. Wobble Wedges patented interlocking ridges allow you to stack and combine Wobble Wedges to any height. Once you have placed the shims, replace the flagstone paver back into it’s hole and press firmly to ensure the wobble has been removed. Shake a small amount of sand around the edges of the paver to reincorporate the mended paver back into the patio or walkway.

Best Plastic Shims for Construction

When it comes to construction, you need a shim tough enough to stand up to the task at hand. Wobble Wedge® plastic shims can support up to 2,000 lbs, making them perfect for holding heavy loads like stone countertops, wooden window frames, and heavy porcelain toilets. If you’re vetting out which plastic shims are the best for construction, look no further than Wobble Wedge. The patented interlocked ridges keep the shims from moving or sliding apart under weight or pressure of heavy material. Even when exposed to moisture, Wobble Wedge plastic construction shims will not rot, swell, or expand making them ideal for use in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and garages.

Need more proof that Wobble Wedges are the best plastic shim for construction projects? Below are some of our customers favorite uses for Wobble Wedges in residential and commercial construction environments.

Window Framing and Installation

Even with all of the care, measuring, and leveling in the world sometimes windows just won’t sit level in their frames. Use a standard size or BigGap™ Wobble Wedge, depending on the size of your gap, to accommodate and level the window before framing in and finishing the window. Windows that slide open or closed on tracks must be especially level for the sliding mechanism to work smoothly.

Stone Countertop Installation

Multiple cabinet units installed side-by-side are rarely perfectly flush all the way across the top. In addition, stone slabs contain natural imperfections that can cause them to wobble or rock when installed. Sometimes, even a Mini Wobble Wedge is enough to sure up the gap and get the countertop to sit perfectly flush. Use a flexible plastic Wobble Wedge between the stone and the cabinet top.

Level Stone and Concrete Pavers, Blocks & Steps

The buck doesn’t stop there! Use BigGap™ Wobble Wedges and standard sized Wobble Wobble plastic shims to level stone and concrete pavers, blocks, and steps. Finish up a new set of exterior concrete steps with perfection by compensating for any gaps with Wobble Wedges. Install a new stone paver patio free of tripping hazards by putting plastic shims under any of the pavers that rock or wobble.

Fix a Wobbly Toilet

For more than three decades Wobble Wedge has been earning its reputation as the best toilet shim among professional master plumbers and residential handymen. It couldn’t possibly be easier to use. Simply slide a flexible plastic Wobble Wedge under the rim of the toilet and use an exacto knife to trim away the excess. Wobble Wedge toilet shims are available in white, clear, and black. Choose the color that blends most seamlessly into the finished environment.

Level Large Appliances on Uneven Flooring

How to Use Leveling Wedges

Between uneven floors and self-assembled furniture the reasons for items to rock or wobble in your home or business are unlimited. Leaning bookshelves, wobbling tabletops, and rocking appliances can compromise aesthetic, comfort, and safety. To quickly and professionally resolve issues with wobbling furniture or appliances use handy plastic leveling wedges like Wobble Wedge. For more than 30 years Wobble Wedge® has been the proprietor of the world’s best leveling shims, available in flexible plastic and rigid plastic, and in a variety of sizes and colors.

What is a Leveling Wedge?

The concept of the leveling wedge is a simple, but powerful one. A small triangular sliver of strong plastic material that can fill the gap between your furniture or appliances and the flooring material to create lasting stability. A level shim gradually increases in thickness to provide a universally convenient solution for gaps and wobbling. Additionally, Wobble Wedge shims possess patented interlocking ridges that allow users to stack and combine wedges to fill any gap. Flexible plastic Wobble Wedge leveling shims can be trimmed with a utility knife once placed in their location so the excess wedge material is not visible to the naked eye.

How to Use a Leveling Wedge

Using level wedges is an incredibly easy process. To determine if your furniture or appliances need a level wedge simply place both hands firmly on top of the object in question. Gently shift your pressure from one hand to the other to see if the item rocks or leans. If the item in question shifts under your pressure it is resting unevenly on the ground. Place a level on top of your furniture or appliance and rock it very gently to find the level point. Once you have identified how to make the item sit level, use Wobble Wedge plastic leveling wedges to fill the gap between the bottom of the item and the flooring material. Stack and combine wedges until the gap is completely full. When you remove your hands from the top of the furniture item or appliance it should sit stable on top of the plastic level shims.

Flexible Plastic vs. Rigid Plastic Wedges

Depending on the flooring material and the item you are trying to level stipulates whether you should use a flexible plastic leveling wedge or a rigid plastic leveling wedge. Furniture items placed on hard flooring material are best served with a flexible plastic leveling shim. Flexible plastic shims will grip hard flooring material surfaces and won’t slip or slide under pressure. Appliances or furniture on soft flooring materials such as carpet or rugs are best benefited by a rigid plastic leveling wedge, which will support the item firmly on the soft flooring material. Rigid plastic shims can also help prevent compression marks on soft flooring materials.

When To Use a BigGap Wedge

Standard Wobble Wedge leveling shims can be stacked and combined using the patented interlocking ridges to fill any gap between furniture and appliances and your flooring material. However, there are some gaps that require a more industrial solution. In these instances, use a BigGap™ Wobble Wedge, which is twice as thick as the standard wedges. BigGap™ leveling wedges can also be stacked and combined to increase height. BigGap™ shims are ideal for large furniture or appliances such as workbenches, storage shelves, hot water heaters, washing machines, and more.

10 Ways to Use Furniture Leveling Shims

Whether you’ve recently relocated, or are wanting to spruce up your home with a remodel, a frustrating challenge many encounter is unstable furniture. Flooring materials and surfaces can be uneven and foundations can shift over time. Uneven flooring can end up causing items to rock, lean, or wobble

The world’s original plastic stackable furniture shim, Wobble Wedge®, was invented for this very reason. The founders lived in an older home with sloping floors where furniture wobbled, tilted, rattled, rocked, and leaned. Everything they tried either didn’t hold up over time or didn’t stay in place, which inspired the creation of the Wobble Wedge plastic furniture shim. Since 1985 the Wobble Wedge has been the best furniture shim on the market. Here are ten of the most common uses for Wobble Wedge furniture shims.

Most Popular Uses of Wobble Wedge® Furniture Shim

  1. Bookcases: Whether in your living room, bedrooms, or office, ensure your bookcases are stable and stay in place with a Wobble Wedge plastic furniture shim. Load your bookcases with valuables, knowing they will remain safely and securely in place with Wobble Wedges.  
  1. End Tables: Don’t let unstable end tables turn into a problem, like spilling beverages, knocking over a treasured vase, or a magazine avalanche. Simply slide in a plastic Wobble Wedge furniture shim under the table or leg, and rest assured you are protected.  
  1. Coffee Tables: A wobbly coffee table can result in spilled beverages, sliding supper plates, or pose a danger to kids or pets playing in their proximity. On soft flooring, such as carpets or rugs, use a rigid plastic Wobble Wedge to shim uneven coffee tables. On hard flooring surfaces, like hardwood, stone, or laminate, use flexible Wobble Wedges.
  1. Dining Room Tables: Nothing is worse than a dining room table that isn’t stable during a meal. Ensure your family and guests have an unforgettable dining experience each time they gather around the table by compensating for any gaps under table legs with a plastic Wobble Wedge furniture shim.
  1. Heavy Furniture: Whether you’re a renter, living in a temporary space, or want to move your furniture around, you need the right furniture wedge to protect your flooring from heavy items. You’ll be protected from costly damage, unsightly imprints, and flooring damage with BigGap™ Wobble Wedges. These large rigid plastic shims can hold more than 2,000 lbs.
  1. Couches: Protect your carpet and flooring while keeping your couch from moving by relying on a Wobble Wedge furniture shim to hold it in place. Combine multiple BigGap™ wedges side by side under couch legs and supports. Prevent your couch from rocking or leaning when the family jumps on for movie night.
  1. Hutches: Stabilizing a hutch containing antiques, china, fragile items, or heirlooms is essential for ensuring the protection of the items inside. While your hutch is empty check for any leaning or rocking. Compensate for any gaps below the hutch with rigid plastic Wobble Wedge furniture shims. Shim and stabilize delicate items within the hutch with Mini Wobble Wedges.
  1. Vanities: Are you upgrading or replacing your vanity? Or maybe your existing vanity has a visible gap or perceptible wobble. Stabilize a bathroom vanity with a flexible plastic Wobble Wedge bathroom furniture shim. Flexible plastic Wobble Wedges will grip onto hard flooring material, and won’t slip, or expand if exposed to moisture.
  1. Dressers: A tall or heavy dresser, if placed on uneven flooring, can rock or wobble, or even have issues with its drawers sliding smoothly along their tracks. If you’re having issues with a dresser on uneven flooring, a Wobble Wedge furniture shim can provide a quick solution with longevity. For dressers placed on soft flooring, such as carpets or rugs, use a rigid plastic Wobble Wedge. For dressers on hard flooring materials, such as hardwood or laminate, use a flexible plastic Wobble Wedge for better grip and floor protection.
  2. Workbenches: Another popular use for Wobble Wedge furniture shims is in the garage. Stabilize large, heavy workbenches with BigGap™ Wobble Wedges. These industrial shims can hold more than 2,000 lbs and won’t slip or slide under the weight and pressure of big projects.

Shim & Stabilize A Hot Water Heater

Whether you’re a professional plumber or capable DIYer, installing a hot water heater takes patience and craftsmanship. Most hot water heaters are installed in basements, garages, kitchens, and restaurants with intentionally unlevel flooring. Concrete floors are designed to slope toward a drain to prevent flooding in your building. However, leaning hot water heaters can be a safety concern and do long-term damage to your property. 

For your hot water heater to work correctly, you don’t want it rocking, leaning, or wobbling. This could stress the plumbing joints and ultimately cause a leak. With just one gallon of water weighing eight pounds, it’s easy to see why these appliances need to be stabilized. First, use a carpenter’s level to check the sides of the hot water heater and ensure it’s straight. When it’s not, Wobble Wedge® plastic shims can ensure your hot water heater works properly and help you avoid costly repairs long term.  

Accommodate for Unlevel Flooring

No matter what type of building, floors are rarely perfectly level. Use Wobble Wedges® to solve unlevel flooring below your hot water heater tank and ease needless stress on plumbing and joints. You can stack and combine Wobble Wedges to get the perfect height. Use as many as necessary. In addition, Wobble Wedge interlocking ridges won’t slip apart once underweight. Wobble Wedge plastic shims are a highly versatile tool with superior functionality that helps you get the job done faster.

Plastic Shims Not Susceptible to Water Damage

Materials like wood or composite are easily penetrated by water and not only warp over time but can affect the stability of your structure. In addition, plumbing issues with hot water heaters can lead to mold and mildew, which can become costly problems. Durable Wobble Wedge plastic shims are not susceptible to water damage. They will not swell or rot, like wooden shims, when placed under a hot water heater tank and exposed to excess moisture or flooding.

Wobble Wedge Holds Up to 2,000 Pounds

Whether you own an under-the-sink, tank, or tankless, also known as on demand hot water heater, we have you covered. Be assured the reliable Wobble Wedges can hold up to 2,000 pounds of weight. That is enough to stabilize and support any hot water heater tank at total capacity. So depending on the type of hot water heater you have, from a 6-gallon tank that weighs 76 pounds up to a 115-gallon tank that weighs 1,183 pounds, there is no job the Wobble Wedge can’t support. 

Tough And Durable For Any Job

Made proudly in the United States, the patented Wobble Wedge comes in all shapes, sizes, materials, colors, and numerous customizable options that make it perfect for any job. Going strong since 1985, we’ve been helping professionals and business owners ensure their projects are done right and on time.
