Spacers for keyed deadbolts

A home owner from Longview, TX says:
I recently purchased two Swisco Keyed Deadbolts - 40-039. The deadbolt parts include 1 flat spacer to place between the latch frame and the inside of the door. The spacer is approximately 3/32 " thick. I will need to use 3 spacers for each lock, so that I need 4 more spacers. How do I order these spacers? Thanks,

Dave from SWISCO responded:
Thanks for contacting us. I'm afraid that at this time the exact spacers, or "shims" as they're known, are not available separate from the 40-039 kit. I would suggest considering our 40-170 shim, though. It has the same hole spacing, and you can sandwich the 40-179 between the two spacers that came with the 40-039. I've done that before and it works great.
