    Catrike boom shim replacement?

    About to need my third boom shim.

    Does anyone have any knowledge about using something else as a shim? Something that will hold up and not deteriorate or slip down the boom arm?
    I don't move the boom on this trike any more so a permanent solution would be fine, short of a welder....

    I don't know about the shim other than I've seen Catrikes with them. Would it help to use carbon assembly paste? The purpose of the stuff is to prevent carbon pieces from slipping since they can't be torqued to death like metal bits.

    I used a cut down piece of a sheet of 8x11 lamination and small amount of spray on glue on my expedition and it has not moved in 6 years
