Easiest Method for Adjusting a High Shimmed Locking Nut Height?

Usually I'll slacken the strings, take off the nut, remove a shim(s), put the nut back on, and then string it back up and see where I'm at height-wise. Was curious if there was an easier or more precise method (it's a slow day here ).
