Carriage Shim Kits
With different manufacturers making racks at slightly different sizes it can sometimes lead to a gap between the ISOLATOR carriage and your upright. Our shim kits are designed to address that and to remove any shake or wobble you may experience with a loose fit in your setup.
The shims simply go in behind your plastic pressure plate on the carriage and close any gap you’re experiencing. The shims come in 1mm or 2mm sizes. The current hardware used to fasten these will work up to 2mm but anything over we will also send longer screws to account for added thickness. Our longer hardware will allow 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm to work on each side. Measure the gap you have and buy the proper shims to address that and you’re good to go!
