Are SIM adaptors safe?

Is it safe to use these SIM adaptors to change the size of your SIM card, or would you recommend getting a proper SIM that's the right size where possible?

Where possible, get a correctly sized SIM card. However, I've used adapters and I've never had a problem, but I know that they can damage the contacts on the phone.

The better SIM adaptors have a thin film on one side so that any catch that comes from above to push the sim in place cannpt get caught...
Some phones that I cannot recommend for use with sim adaptors: Nokia 1020...heck, any Lumia, some Blackberries... Rule of thumb: if it feels awkward to insert it, stop. It's probably as awkward or worse to remove it.
