Shims are often required to achieve a perfect seam between stone countertops. Commonly used contractor shims are long and must be trimmed off at the front of the cabinet. At just 2 inches, Wobble Wedge provide plenty of precision adjustment but rarely need to be trimmed.
Stone Countertop Installation
- Apply your chosen adhesive to the framing members of the cabinet base.
- Set the stone or cultured stone countertop on the cabinet base.
- Set a long level across the length of the countertop and a short level across the width.
- Using a pry bar with a thin end, lift the stone carefully and slide a Hard Wobble Wedge between the stone and the cabinet frame.
- If a Wobble Wedge gets pushed in too far it is easy to retrieve and adjust by pulling on the Grab Bar with a pair of needle nose pliers.
- To adjust the front edge of the countertop, push the Wobble Wedges in from the inside of the cabinet toward the front edge. At 1 7/8” long they will not reach to the front edge of the cabinet and therefore will not need to be trimmed.
- Use as many Wobble Wedges as needed and adjust the countertop to level and achieve perfectly aligned seams.
- Leave the Wobble Wedges in place and allow the glue to set.
