RTC Plastic Horseshoe Tile Shims

Horseshoe tile shims/spacers allow for fast aligning and spacing of stone, granite, marble and large-format tile. The "U" shaped tile spacers can be used for horizontal and vertical installations!  Guaranteed precision and dimensional accuracy and are built to withstand super-heavy loads without compressing. Available in four color-coded thicknesses. 



  • Accurately space and align marble, granite, porcelain, stone, large-format tile and more

  • "U" shape allows the installer to lift both corners of the material and uniformly align the joints
  • Shims are easy to remove after material has set
  • Center bolt space is 1/2"
  • Color coded for easy size recognition, and reusable

    Ask a Question
    • I’m setting square backsplash tiles. Is there a rule of thumb for calculating how many spacers I need based on the number of tiles?

      It will depend on tile size, installation pattern, and type of spacer to be used. For example, a 3"x6" subway tile installed with a 50% brick joint using horseshoe spacers would be upwards of 20 per square foot. If the same tile was being installed using T-spacers, it would be 10-12 per square foot. Please contact us to discuss your particular tile size and layout by our chat option or call us 262-790-2170
