Hard & Soft Plastic Shims Work Together

Plastic Shims with interlocking ridges

Combine Wobble Wedges® for Versatile Functions

One word that should come to mind when you think of Wobble Wedges is “versatility”. The hard and soft plastic shims are perfect for different functions. From working great as furniture levelers to stopping items from sliding on your hardwood floors, and so many uses in between. But the best part of Wobble Wedge® shims is that they can be used together to add even more uses.

Hard Shims for Furniture on Soft Flooring

Hard plastic shims are great for supporting furniture on carpets or soft flooring, where the firm shim will give the stability you need. They also work great with heavy items, like a wobbly workbench in your garage. Use the hard plastic shims, which come in black or clear, under the workbench to keep it steady while you work! Wobble Wedge hard plastic shims can support over 2,000 lbs, so even your heaviest items can be stabilized.

Soft Furniture Shims for Items on Hard Flooring

Soft plastic shims are perfect when the item you’re supporting is delicate or dentable, like a vintage wood cabinet, and the soft plastic means they won’t leave a mark on your cabinet or on your floor. They also work great on hard flooring, like hardwood, tile, or laminate. The soft rubber “grips” the floor and keeps your furniture from sliding. If you sit down on your couch and it moves a few inches each time, pretty soon it’ll be in another room! But luckily you can use soft plastic shims, which come in three colors, black, clear, and white, to keep your furniture in place, no more sliding!

Combine Shims for Versatile Uses

The best part of Wobble Wedges is that the hard and soft shims can be combined to work together! Need to level a wooden cabinet on carpeting? A hard plastic shim gives stability on the carpeted floor, and use a soft shim to pad the delicate woodwork of the cabinet. With the patented interlocking ridges on Wobble Wedges using two shims together means they won’t slip! Have a heavy table that you don’t want sliding around on your laminate flooring? Use a soft shim to stop it from sliding, and a hard shim to firmly hold that heavy table in place.

Another great aspect of Wobble Wedges is that you can combine the different sizes to fill any gap. Stack two or stack five, the interlocking ridges will keep them firmly together. Use a Big Gap wedge with a Standard Sized wedge to fill a ¾ inch or larger space. A Standard Sized shim and a Mini Wobble Wedge can be combined for spaces less than half an inch. Two Big Gap wedges can fill nearly a 1 inch gap, really the combinations are endless!

Level a Countertop with Wobble Wedges®

Wobble Wedge® Plastic Shims Make Leveling a Countertop Easy

You’ve decided to invest in an incredibly exciting home renovation; new countertops! Whether you’re installing a fabricated, wooden, or stone countertop, ensuring that your new countertop is level is absolutely key to the success of this project. You don’t want to spend the next 10 years standing at your kitchen counter wishing you had just spent five extra minutes getting it perfectly level! Wobble Wedge® plastic shims make it easy to install a perfectly level countertop with ease.

Identify Your Wobble

Once your new countertop is in position it’s time to identify your wobble. Place a level on top of your countertop and with both palms face down on the countertop gently rock it back and forth. Have a helper observe where the countertop lifts off the cabinetry below. It’s these gaps between the countertop and the cabinetry that you will want to fill with a Wobble Wedge plastic shim.

Level your Countertop

Once you have identified which pieces of the countertop raise off the the cabinetry, move Wobble Wedge plastic shims into place to stabilize and level the countertop. Soft plastic Wobble Wedges will gently cup the material of your cabinetry while firmly holding your countertop material in place. Our patented interlocking ridges prevent the countertop material from slipping or sliding. Simply stack multiple Wobble Wedges to fill any size gap.

Perfect for Stone Countertops

Stone countertops are a gorgeous addition to any residential or commercial property. These ultra-rigid, heavy countertops can be even more difficult to level and position than their fabricated and wooden counterparts. Soft plastic Wobble Wedges are an ideal plastic shim for leveling granite and other stone countertops.

How To Install A Concrete Water Fountain

Many homeowners love the look and the sound of concrete water fountains in home gardens or as lavish landscaping elements on estates. However, the ground where you are installing a concrete fountain is rarely flat. Luckily, Wobble Wedge plastic shims make it easy to level a concrete water fountain during installation. These rigid plastic shims can hold up to 2,000 pounds per shim and can be stacked to fill any gap. Continue reading to learn exactly how to use Wobble Wedges to level a concrete fountain during installation.

How to Level a Concrete Fountain During Installation

  1. Select a location.
  2. Install a foundation if needed. Fountains weighing under 30 lbs can be placed right on the leveled ground. Fountains over 30 lbs will need to be placed on a broad foundation made of cinder blocks, flagstone, or poured concrete.
  3. Dig a trench to lay in a GFI electrical power line to the fountain location. Be sure to consult your local building codes to learn the correct method for laying power lines in your area.
  4. Dig in a second trench for a water line. If you wish to run your fountain in the winter, be sure to bury the water line below the frost line in your area.
  5. Follow the instructions provided with your fountain to install the hardware and pump. Be sure to leave an easy access to the pump and water lines for cleaning and maintenance.
  6. Place the first tier of the fountain on the foundation with the water line ready to go into the successive tiers. Place a long carpenter’s level across the lip of the first tier and rotate it around to see where it needs to be raised to be level.
  7. Using a thin pry bar, raise the fountain and slip in Hard Wobble Wedges where needed. Rotate the level often to insure it is level in all directions.
  8. Install each successive tiers with water line.
  9. Fill the fountain with water and turn on the power. Check for leaks and tighten connections if needed.
  10. As the water is running, use a pry bar to slip Hard Wobble Wedges or Hard Mini-Wobble Wedges under each tier where they are needed to achieve the perfect water flow.
